Item description for Dutch Resource: Collaborative Exercises in Graphic Design (French Edition) by Paul Elliman, Irma Boom & Maxine Kopsa...
Eleven participants in the Dutch Werkplaats Typografies design program recently asked an equal number of more accomplished graphic designers to join forces with them in collaborations destined for Frances Chaumont Graphic Arts Festival. Dutch Resource reports on that collaboration. Each of the 11 different pairs showcases both designers working methods and the innovative, experimental aesthetic that unites them. The book as a whole offers a clear overview of the uncompromising practice of todays graphic designer, a specialist and jack-of-all-trades who is not only master of his or her own work but often works as a writer, researcher, editor, curator, critic and photographer as well.

I actually grabbed a copy when I went to visit the Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem during my studies in 05. I would highly recommend this book due to the various work methods and insight into the mind of these designers working to create collaborative pieces for the Chaumont festival. It is a really honest and human look into who designers really are, and the boundaries under which they work. Design is so much more than aethetics, selling products, and solving client's problems and I am happy this book illustrated this very well.
