‘Active literature’ arrived

This week we received copies of Christopher Burke’s new book. It has been well printed by Die Keure in Bruges and well bound (with cold glue!) by Van Waarden in Zaandam. Perhaps it’s one of the very few (fingers of one hand?) books about Tschichold whose design & production values might bear comparison with the books that he himself brought into the world. This is to say only that it’s a work of ordinary industrial production that uses sympathetic materials, and whose design is in the European mainstream that Tschichold so largely helped to define. The official date of release in Europe is 2 August. Copies should reach our North American distributor in September or so.
