The famous Dutch typographer and museum curator Willem Sandberg is portrayed by art historian Ank Leeuw Marcar through interviews compiled more than 30 years ago. Particularly focusing on the period from 1945-1970, during which Sandberg was quite active and passionate in both typographic forms and as director of Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum, this thoroughly edited reprint of the original book closely examines his legacy and influence, its cultural aspects and roles of art historians and curators. His approaches to these topics remain relevant and challenging even today, offering new impulse in the discourse surrounding art and its place in an historic perspective.
