Helmut Salden Uncovered 1:1


NOTE: At present we’re sold out but expect more copies in mid-March. Shall we set one aside for you? Let us know.

Helmut Salden Uncovered 1:1 is the first monograph (in English) on—you guessed it—Helmut Salden, exploring his original sketches and working drawings. The material spans 1939 through 1970, years during which Salden (1910–96) was the most celebrated Dutch lettering artist. All drawings are reproduced at actual size and reveal in detail his pursuit of the ultimate form. A stunning and humbling body of work, beautifully presented and with a biography of Salden. Good. Good. Good.
