Grafisk Design: Henrik Nygren
An amazing book, Grafisk Design: Henrik Nygren. Over 15 years ago a mutual friend recommended that Henrik stop by our studio, Design MW, and I have been a fan ever since. When I heard he was putting together a monograph of his work of the past two decades, I ordered my copy before they were bound.
Henrik has developed a remarkable body of work with institutions, galleries, artists, and publishers such as Beckmans College of Design, Birkhäuser, Hasselblad Centre, Moderna Museet, Phaidon, Serpentine Galleries, David Zwirner, and so many others. With essays by Tom Hedqvist, Armin Hofmann, Ellsworth Kelly, Signe Persson-Melin, Peter Saville et al.
There are 896 pages with 1315 images of personal inspiration and examples of his work.
Not sold on Amazon, as far as we know we are the only US seller of this book. Very limited quantities.
We are lifelong bibliophiles. Shelves filled with books line our studio walls and more are stacked on every surface. We admire their design, scrutinize their typography, fetishize their paper and analyze their binding. We read them for research, for inspiration, for the sheer pleasure of exploring new worlds of thought and experience.
We have curated a selection of books to offer our audience, based on our interests and yours. Most of our books are limited editions or out of print, they are seldom available in the US, and not available on Amazon.
The fact that we have now launched our own imprint seems an inevitable extension. Wms&Co. books are created in collaboration with the interesting characters, visionaries and designers we encounter. Subject matter varies wildly but is always infused with the spirit of creativity and a respect for good design.
