Posters by Willem Sandberg and Wim Crouwel…part 12

Another great set andn this time both poster and catalogue look almost identical (1970). Both are great simplistic in their designs , but strong in their appearance and they immediately draw your attention.

The Concrete poetry is one of my personal favorit publications and i like the poster as well. Both are availabel at www.ftn-books.com

Posters by Willem Sandberg and Wim Crouwel…part 10

This time a double bill of Renato Guttuso and Alan Davie. Two exhibions both held at the Stedelijk Museum at the end of 1962. It is rumored that this poster was designed by Sandberg , but the execution of it done by ten Have. Still i love this poster .. The red and green indicate the hand of Sandberg and the simplicity of it makes this a highly important historical poster for the Stedelijk Museum. Both poster and catalogues of the exhibitions are available at www.ftn-books.com

Posters by Willem Sandberg and Wim Crouwel…part 9

Another iconic duo from the early Sixties is the Wim Crouwel designed poster for the Etienne martin exhibition in 1963 and the catalogue he did design for the same exhibition. The catalogue is still influenced by the designs of Willem Sandberg, but the poster is completely different and a 100% Wim Crouwel design. The Martin poster has become the starting point of a series of iconic posters he made for the Stedelijk Museum. Both publications are now available at http://www.ftn-books.com.

Posters by Willem Sandberg and Wim Crouwel…part 8

This blog it is the combibnation of the Crouwel designed poster and catalogue for the Mataré exhibition in 1964 at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. They are quite different. Where the poster was inspired by earlier lay out and typography. The catalogue was a highly original one . Special cover, excellent lay out for the inside. I like both, but perhaps i favor the catalogue design over the poster design.

both are now availabel at www.ftn-books.com

Niki de Saint Phalle poster/ 2001

Schermafbeelding 2020-10-03 om 16.06.43

Since i have met my wife , we travel every year to the Alsace region in France to have a relaxing weekend, enjoy some great meals and wine and visit the Vitra Compound and when they have nice exhibition, the Beyeler and Tinguely museums. On every occasion i have bought some additions to my inventory. Publications which were sold at bargain prices….. except the poster i am now selling. This was full price but i had to have 2 for my personal collection. One I framed , the other was lost until recently i encountered it behind a bookcase still in good condition. Surviving almost 20 years in the dark. I searched for it on the internet and discovered that a few years ago (2013) one was sold at Christies.

It is not the catalogue which steals the show, but certainly the poster designed by Wim Crouwel does.

Daniel Spoerri ( 1971 poster)

Just leaving the path of Crouwel /Sandberg designed posters for this Daniel Spoerri designed extraordinary poster for his 1971 exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum. In the early Seventies the Stedelijk Museum commissioned some of the exhibiting artist to design their own publicity posters . Tinguely was one of them and so was Daniel Spoerri, who made one of the very best Seventies posters ever. Just for your self…..

Together with the exhibition, 2 publications were published , both designed by Wim Crouwel. All three items are now availablel at www.ftn-books.com

In this blog it is time to show the combination of the 1973 Tinguely poster and the Wim Crouwel designed catalogue which he designed for this 1973 exhibition.

The poster is an original design by Jean Tingeuly, where as the catalogue, which was published for this exhibition, was designed by Wim Crouwel. It is just functional where the poster is full of life and design elements . I like both very much but these are worlds apart from each other. It is up to you which is the better graphic design.

Hamish Fulton special

Schermafbeelding 2019-12-03 om 17.26.55

It has been 2 months ago that i acquired a collection of invitations from the Nineties and among them there were several Hamish Fulton ones. I remember Hamish as being one of the friendliest artists i have met at the Gemeentemuseum. He was willing to sign 20 copies of the book which we published by us.

Since i have followed his career and exhibitions and now i have added 4 special invitations to the collection of http://www.ftn-books.com which are now for sale. The ones i like most are the Graeme Murray gallery and Marian Goodman gallery ( signed and dedicated for Rudi) ones  and there is of course the time/indoor/outdoor with japanese text. This is the one i can not find any information on so if you know who organized this one let me know. Your help would be appreciated.
