The Gerrit Noordzij Prize is given to type designers and typographers for extraordinary contributions to the fields of type design, typography and type education. The prize is awarded every three years by the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague together with the Museum Meermanno, under the auspices of the Dr. P. A. Tiele Trust. The prize is named after Gerrit Noordzij, who was a professor of typeface design at the Royal Academy of Art (a course that was founded by him). For the continuity of the prize, the Gerrit Noordzij Fund was created.

The Gerrit Noordzij prize 2012 ceremony and an exhibition of Wim Crouwel will be held at Friday 9th of March in the Royal Academy of Art (KABK).

本書は、クロウェルがハーグ王立芸術アカデミーよりゲリット・ノルツィ賞を受賞した際に開催された展覧会に合わせて刊行されたもので、new alphabetやgridnikの書体開発過程などのグラフィックとタイポグラフィをコンパクトにまとめたものとなります。バーコードなど随所にクロウェルの書体が使用された魅力的な一冊です。
