“Piet Zwart utilises a spectrum of cinematic imagery in his design for a series of ten monographs on new directions in cinema published by W. L. & J. Brusse in Rotterdam between 1931 and 1933. Zwart employed images of film-strips, movie cameras and projectors, formal devices such as multiple exposures and overprinting, and frames from slapstick comedy to documentary films. He therefore summarized the cinematic and photographic ideas that influenced avant-garde page design during the 1920s and 1930s .”
