Karel Martens is a Dutch artist and graphic designer whose 36-year career is based on continuing the ideals of the modernist pioneers of the 1920s and 1930s. This book is a critical examination as well as a celebration of Martens's broad spectrum of work. Numerous illustrations of his designs are included, as are a year-by-year survey of his work and a list of all of his projects. Also in this volume are four critical essays and a text by Martens himself.

"Martens is the heir of the European Modernists, and shows the influence of Bauhaus and the Swiss school....An artist and craftsman, Martens creates work for himself and for clients in equal quantitiy. He seems to regard every project he undertakes as another great adventure. This book, designed by Jaap van Triest with Martens himself, makes every effort to represent these qualities. From its double, folded brown paper cover to its uncoated double pages, it feels both precious and hand-made. The mass of images that at first seem piled up like goods on a flea- market stall turn out to be painstakingly arranged....Such a book is a delight." --< -- Eye
