MARTENS, Karel and David Senior

Pap. Amsterdam, 2013

Book ID: 94704

Comprising scores of photographs from inside the studio of the prolific Dutch graphic designer and educator Karel Martens, this book is a testament to the personal and experimental nature of his work. Although he can be placed in the tradition of Dutch modernism, Martens seems to maintain a certain distance from contemporary developments. The shelves of books and stacks of papers seen in these images are evocative of both his professional practice and work as an artist, which more recently entails making relief prints from found industrial artefacts. A fascinating and intimate creative portrait of this design community mentor, with texts by David Senior and Martens himself.
