Joost Swarte: Biblio + Picto
Scratch Books, 2022
In the work of Dutch illustrator Joost Swarte, the book plays a leading role. He has drawn many full, designed and provided covers. In this edition the emphasis is on the book, as an object, as a living being, and also as a carrier of ideas that have been entrusted to the book. In addition, we see pictograms and silhouettes, modest, meaningful vignettes. Visual language in essence, somewhere between a drawing and the alphabet.
