Gerrit Noodzij Prize exhibition catalog
published by De Buitenkant
The Gerrit Noordzij Prize is a biennial award given to an individual who has made a notable contribution to contemporary type design. In 2009 the award was presented in The Hague, Netherlands to Tobias Frere-Jones. To commemorate an exhibition of Tobias’ work, a catalogue was designed by the Type & Media class of 2008/2009. The book collects much of the designer’s work between 1987 and 2006, articles by Frere-Jones, as well as anecdotes and stories from friends and colleagues.
