Koninklijke Begeer: Catalogus van Medailles, Plaquettes, Sportprijzen


ZWART, Piet. Koninklijke Begeer: Catalogus van Medailles, Plaquettes, Sportprijzen. 44 pp., illustrated with photomontage throughout. Small 4to, bound in original silver wrappers, in a new matching cloth folding box. Voorschoten: Koninklijke Begeer, 1935.

A little-known example of Piet Zwart's work as a book designer, here devoted to the catalogue of the Dutch royal collection of coins and medals. As is typical of Zwart's work, he takes a potentially dull subject and injects it with life through imaginative use of layout and typography.

A little wear to the covers, some light foxing to the blank verso of the front and back cover, else fine. Rare with OCLC listing only 2 copies worldwide, both in the Netherlands.
