This book is based on interviews with Willem Sandberg, influential director of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam from 1945 until 1962. Sandberg had outspoken ideas about the meaning of modern art, the cooperation with artists and his work as a typographer. It gives an interesting overview of the cultural and social environments of that era. Sandberg’s opinions and anecdotes are still provocative and lively.
The book includes previously unpublished new year’s wishes designed by Sandberg himself. The publication is a cooperation between publisher Valiz Amsterdam, Veenman printers Rotterdam and Werkplaats Typografie Arnhem.
