Dutch Alphabets is a portfolio containing 47 broadsides featuring new samples of lettering and writing by today’s most significant ‘Dutch’ lettering artists, type designers, calligraphers and sign painters. All the contributors are working and/or educated in the Netherlands.
These are shapes, letters and words, drawn in different proportions so they can fit to a range of heights and widths. If screen dimensions are variable then artwork should be dynamic too. For maximum effect, resize your window, try it narrow, try it wide or rotate your device.
'What drew us to study type design in the Netherlands is the way Dutch letterers see type as shapes created by a tool—thinking mainly about Gerrit Noordzij’s work—and their studies on how pressure, rotation, angles and tools all influence the resulting letterform.'
From 6 March to 2 April, the Royal Academy of Art is featuring an exhibition of work by designer Karel Martens. In 2012 Martens (Mook & Middelaar, 1939) was awarded the Gerrit Noordzij Prize for typography and typeface design.
