Concrete Shapes

Janos Fajo's Ouvre Book
and Custom typeface design

I had the pleasure to design the ouvre book for my master, János Fajó. He is one of the most important concrete, geometric and constructive artists on the World.
The book covers all the works, what he did in his life so far from 1950.
I created a clean layout system, in the same concrete spirit, what Fajo has in his works.
Putting the design elements to the second place, the book concentrate on his works, avoids the equivocation and unnecessary things. His artworks show up in a flexible way.
I designed a pure, easy to read custom typeface, exclusively for this book, based on Westeinde.

The book was produced in 2000 pieces and 200 numbered copies.
