HN Werkmann

I have just received a copy of Monographics by Dutch designer and printmaker Hendrik Werkman (1882–1945). He is best known for his innovative printing techniques and avant-garde typography. Unfortunately he published a series of underground booklets by Jewish poets and writers during the Nazi occupation of Holland and was imprisoned by German secret police in 1945 and executed without trial. View my flikr set to see some of his monographics works.
