    Letman: The Artwork and Lettering of Job Wouters

Typographic treats aplenty as the work of Letman aka Job Wouters is captured in gorgeous new book

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Back in 2009, Job Wouters and his brother Roel took part in It’s Nice That’s If You Could Collaborate exhibition, creating what would be one of the most memorable, and covetable, pieces on display, The Rainbowgun. Well-loved, and highly regarded worldwide as one of the most innovative contemporary typographers working today, Job Wouters has now teamed up with Gestalten to compile all of his work into one big book and despite the difficulties of squeezing on to pages works that can range from minuscule floor murals to enormous wall paintings, they’ve carried it off. The reckless abandon with which Job approaches hand-lettering and typography is demonstrated throughout the book, from the fabric designs he co-created for Dries van Noten to the piles of different papers covered in magnificent, off-the-cuff calligraphy.

Catch Job speaking with his brother Roel plus a whole host of other names at It’s Nice That’s creative Symposium Here this September. Tickets available here.

Letman: The Artwork and Lettering of Job Wouters is out now.
