Richard Hollis - Designs for the Whitechapel


This will be the last title published by Hyphen Press (London). Richard Hollis was the graphic designer for London's Whitechapel Art Gallery in the years 1969-73 and 1978-85. The book reproduces much of what was printed for Whitechapel during the two periods in which Hollis worked for the gallery. Christopher Wilson's monograph is an exemplary examination of a body of graphic design. This book matches the spirit of the work it describes: active, passionate, aesthetically refined, and committed to getting things right. As in Hollis’s work, ‘design’ here is a verb as much as a noun.
