Wim Crouwel ‘in his own words’ by Toon Lauwen

Here’s another book to add to the holiday wish list. Lauwen Books recently released Wim Crouwel ‘in his own words’, a selection of lectures and articles delivered by Wim Crouwel between 1973 and 2006. Considering Wim’s long and established history with design, I’m sure it’s a fascinating read full of inspiring stories and valuable insights. The book is currently sold out at typotheque, but it appears copies are still available directly through the publisher as well as Nijhof & Lee.

Nice book, but there’s a fair amount of typos and basic typography errors throughout.
