    Geen Bitter’s marvelous book Gewone Letters. Gerrit’s Early Models is set in Slávka Pauliková’s FF Dora.

    A typographic rarity and unexpected find, 18 original and unpublished Gerrit Noordzij printing plates were uncovered a couple of years ago during a letterpress workshop cleanout at the KABK in The Hague. The result is a beautiful collection of sketches and material, together with five writings about the plates, Gerrit Noordzij, and his contribution to the field of type and typography. The book also contains contributions from former students Albert-Jan Pool, Frank E. Blokland, Aad van Dommelen, Huug Schipper and Petr van Blokland.

    The first copy of the book was presented to Gerrit Noordzij in Amsterdam at ATypI 2013.
