A posthumous homage to Dutch typographer and artist Hendrik Nicolaas Werkman, publisher of the magazine "The Next Call" and pioneer in the art of avant-garde printing. As a member of the Dutch resistance in World War II, Werkman operated an illegal printing press and was shot by the Gestapo in 1945. His colleagues and peers compiled this homage book more than a decade later to commemorate his work. The book contains both examples of Werkman`s own art prints, as well as art and text from the many contributors - totaling around 100 distinct pieces of artwork from all involved, as well as multiple pieces of artistically-arranged texts about (or related to) Werkman. Contributors include F.R.A Henkels, W. Sandberg, Kurt Martin, HAP Grieshaber, H.L. Greve, Riccarda Gregor, Herbert Schwobel, Emil Kiess, Raoul Ubac, Wilhelm Geyer, Walter Renz, Werner Oberle, Fritz Ruoff, and the students of the Karlsruhe academy of arts. [ATTRIBUTES:] 295x210mm. ~120 unnumbered pages. Beige board hardcover with tan cloth spine. A reproduction of the cover of issue #9 of "The Next Call" appears on the front cover. [CONDITION:] Cover corners bumped and mildly worn. Front cover very lightly scratched. Otherwise, this loving homage to a pioneer and martyr is in very good condition.
