Comprising scores of photographs from inside the studio of the prolific Dutch graphic designer and educator Karel Martens, this book is a testament to the personal and experimental nature of his work. Although he can be placed in the tradition of Dutch modernism, Martens seems to maintain a certain distance from contemporary developments. The shelves of books and stacks of papers seen in these images are evocative of both his professional practice and work as an artist, which more recently entails making relief prints from found industrial artefacts. A fascinating and intimate creative portrait of this design community mentor, with texts by David Senior and Martens himself.

Karel Martens
Reprint


This book is published on the occasion of an exhibition of work by Dutch designer Karel Martens at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Besides offering a closer look at his free work, it also covers his approach to the teaching of graphic design. Comprising a selection of both past work and more recent applied work, it also includes new essays by David Bennewith, who examines Martens’ approach to teaching through its history and accounts from students, and Robin Kinross, who offers a meditation on the artist’s free work, which demonstrates a consistent line of inquiry through his 54 years in graphic design. Martens was the recipient of the Gerrit Noordzij Prize in 2012.
