“The publications of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam are the most stimulating examples of creative typography produced in Europe since the end of the war. (…) Vigorous and virile in conception, they afford an impressive demonstration of the imaginative use of colour and texture and the skillful application of the fundamental principles of modern typography.” — Typographica, no 10, 1955.
