Anthon Beeke’s Nude Alphabet (Blote Meisjes Alfabet) is a highlight of 20th century dutch graphic design. Created as a reaction on Wim Crouwel’s New Alphabet, the Nude Alphabet is in many ways its complete opposite.
We have both legendary alphabets on offer. This one became an icon for the sixties; an elegant, yet provocative expression of sexual freedom and at the same time a reaction against modernist design.
