ONE WEEK ABOUT Heritage by curator Frederike Huygen
In 2013 I wrote a substantial monograph on Jurriaan Schrofer (1926-1990), a highly prolific and versatile designer, who created graphic works but also became a pioneer in photo books, an art director, a teacher, an art manager and a visual artist. Even though he often moved house during his lifetime, an astonishing amount of sketches, drawings and all kinds of preparatory art work survived. This is all kept at Special Collections of the University of Amsterdam. I therefore decided to devote a smaller book to the designer’s sketch as a genre in its own right and to illustrate the now long gone production process of printed matter. Here you can see some drawings and pictures from the book – published by Lecturis.
