Helmut Salden: a prolific lettering artist

Airport Library presents in cooperation with House of the book a small exhibition about book designer Helmut Salden (1910-1996). Almost every reader in The Netherlands probably owns a book with a cover designed by him.

The exhibition shows original lettering designs, book cover designs, awarded books and some letters to authors, publishers and fellow designers.

The exhibition is now possible after years of extensive conservation activities of Salden’s archive.
