New Alphabet, Wim Crouwel, 1st edition 1967

A visionary design, created for computers in a time when there were hardly any around. More than fifty years later the grid based design with only verticals and horizontals still looks as if it could have been made today. A rare and iconic piece of 20th century avant-garde graphic design.

As a reaction to this alphabet, designer Anthon Beeke created his Nude Alphabet, which is in many ways its complete opposite. We have both originals on offer.

First Edition. New Alphabet. Created by Wim Crouwel. 25 x 25 cm, 16 p. Produced by Steendruckkerij de Jong & Company, Hilversum, Holland, 1970. From the Quadrat-Print Series, edited by Pieter Brattinga. In a fine condition for its age.
