Type now, made at top speed, was finished just in time for its presentation on 17 October at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. It goes on sale in Europe now. The exhibition ‘Fred Smeijers: work so far’ was opened last week too. It runs for three weeks, to Saturday 8 November, on which day Fred’s theses will be debated in an open seminar at the Royal Academy.
