Wim Crouwel. Brusselmans. Eindhoven: Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, 1960

“Crouwel interpreted the space in a book as somewhat more rigid and architectural, but in his work too there was room for lightness and variety. He often placed the texts as blocks on the rectangle of the page, usually justified, sometimes with every other line blank. But to impose a structure on the text he too would alternate between bold and a lean italic(...) Very handsome were the thin transparent sheets of coloured glassine paper that he often used before and after illustrations, or laid over the cover, or at the beginning and end of a catalogue.”


Frederike Huygen. Wim Crouwel: modernist. Eindhoven: BIS Lecturis, 2015 (p. 133)
