Jan Van Toorn Artist Book

This artist book was created from selected works from Jan Van Toorn, one most significant and influential Dutch graphic designers to have emerged since the early 1960s. I focused on his calendar for 1972/1973, which was a project that "proposed a new form of engagement for the graphic designer as a mediator and manipulator of photographic meaning" - Rick Poynor.

This book focuses on Van Toorn's ethos to make design political, leading me to work with newsprint as the main print substrate, and to utilize his images in a creative way.
