Here’s another fantastic cover from the Yale University Art Gallery typographic calendar cover series! This one was created by Karel Martens, revered Dutch graphic designer and typographic master. Martens founded and currently supervises the Werkplaats Typografie (WT) program at the ArtEZ Institute of Art in the Netherlands; two monographs, Printed Matter (1996) and Counterprint (2004), have been published about his substantial contributions to the fields of art and design.

One of the wonderful things about the calendar series has been the opportunity to juxtapose generations of designers and various approaches to typography. The Gallery was honored by Martens’s Fall 2007 eye-opening contribution.
