Dick Maan and John Van Der Ree: TYPO-FOTO. ELEMENTAIRE TYPOGRAFIE IN NEDERLAND 1920-1940. Antwerp: Veen/Reflex, 1990. First edition. Text in Dutch. A near-fine hardcover book in full decorated cloth in a fine dust jacket: the four corners of the boards have all been gently bumped. Out-of-print and very uncommon.
9 x 11.75 hardcover book with 112 pages and 135 color and b/w examples of Dutch avant-garde typography from 1920-1940, including many rare and unusual examples.

This is the best anthology of Dutch typography to my knowledge. Beautifully designed and printed, this book gets my absolute highest recommendation. Includes individual sections and biographies devoted to these pioneers of modern typography: Piet Zwart,Paul Schuitema,Gerard Kiljan, Cesar Domela Nieuwenhuis, Dick Elffers, Wim Brusse, Cas Oorthuys, Henny Cahn and Willem Sandberg.
