Helmut Salden: Letterontwerper en boekverzorger


A recent book about Helmut Salden’s sketches and drawings got us curious about his work. This book is an eye-full. Holy cow. Such beautiful work. Covers, lettering, logos. Jeez. So good. And it puts the aforementioned sketches into context. All of the texts are in Dutch so we can’t really tell you much about it, but with page after page of pics, this book is worth a zillion words. We can’t say enough good things about this one. And it’s tragically uncommon.
