    Years of research made it possible for Norrköping Art Museum to mount the first retrospective of Swedish artist Greta Knutson-Tzara (1899–1983). Malmsten Hellberg has designed a 208-page-book for the exhibition, published by Art and Theory.

    In the heyday of modernism, Greta Knutson-Tzara was a member of the avant-garde in Paris; a painter, sculptor and writer who was influenced by her times but always sought to develop her own approach. After divorcing the poet Tristan Tzara, she went back to being Greta Knutson. Her two different names are used in the book, and her name is set in different widths of Schnyder throughout. In addition to headlines in Schnyder, body text is set in Lyon. The captions, table of contents etc. are set with Atlas Grotesk. The book comes in a bilingual edition, in Swedish and English languages.
