The organic type designer
Bram de Does, Typographer & Type DesignerMathieu Lommen and John A. Lane. Idea Books, €65
In the early 1980s, being a type designer was a rarity, and publishing a typeface was something special. The presentation of a good typeface, such as Bram de Does’s Trinité in 1982, was quite an event. Extremely elegant, it brought together the best aspects of the typefaces De Does adored.
