Wim Crouwel ‘in his own words’ presents a selection of lectures and articles delivered by Wim Crouwel between 1973 and 2006. Crouwel’s texts, who has lectured all over the world, document a lengthy and important career as a designer (professor and museum director) that spans from the early postwar years until the first decennium of the 21st century.

The book mirrors a highly committed professional: a pragmatist, critical observer and at some decisive points: a utopian even. The outgoing/diplomatic character of Crouwel, who has always dressed immaculately, is shown in a small portfolio of portraits, made by different photographers over a period of almost sixty-five years.
