Tobias Frere-Jones: Gerrit Noordzij Prize Exhibition


In 2006, Tobias Frere-Jones became the first American to receive the Gerrit Noordzij prize, presented by the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, in honor of his unique contributions to type design, typography, and type education. Frere-Jones’ irrepressible investigations are heavily influenced by older American typography and signage. This publication documents histypes and is accompanied by essays and observations and photographs taken from the designer’s archives, all presented in a fittingly well-designed edition.
