The 98th Exhibition Dutch Graphic Design--A Century June 6 - 27 ,1994

The Japanese exhibition of a world tour of a book exhibition covering 100 years of Dutch graphic designing. It was made smaller because of the hall but therefore became a very concentrated exhibition. There were various printed material from 1890 to the present which were printed with a great amount of attention paid to the design. There was also a lot of foreign influence but the characteristics were of Dutch graphic designs, formative arts, architecture and industrial art, in almost equal positions. It was also developed in an ideal environment with company executives who showed an understanding for culture and design. Graphic design became a specialized field after World War II but a basic characteristic of Dutch design over 100 years is the combination of pure typography with letters and images.
