The book 'Wim Crouwel. Modernist' is detailed monograph about Wim Crouwel: Dutch graphic and exhibition designer, who defined the look of post war Holland with his studio Total Design.

His modernism was reflected in countless posters and catalogues for the Stedelijk Museum, in stamps and experimental work like a sensational computer alphabet. In the seventies Crouwel evoked a lot of criticism but nowadays he is seen as a cult figure and an inspiration for many.
The book is richly illustrated and shows us very much of his fine works. The text focusses on his career and views, gives informative backgrounds on his work, and places it in the right context.
