The Quadrat-Prints: The Unreadable Book

Bruno Munari

Produced in irregular intervals beginning in 1953, Kwadraat Blad or Quadrat Print was a series of printing experiments executed by Steendrukkerij De Jong & Co. in Hilversum, Netherlands. Contributers included Buckminister Fuller, Willem Sandberg, Wim Crouwel, Marc Chagall, Bruno Munari, Diter Rot and countless others.

This issue, which Munari himself called The Unreadable Book, features red and white paper geometrically cut up. The only text in the book is a statement by the publisher. The meaning in the book is made up by the interplay of the shapes, colors, and formats.
