All nine issues of 1:1:1 gathered in one volume. Initiated by graphic designers Richard Niessen and Esther de Vries, the series explores forms of expression in design and offset printing. The starting point for each issue is an interview with an artist or designer that focuses on the representation of his or her work. Eylem Aladogan, Metahaven, David Jablonowski, and Melanie Bonajo are among those who were selected to participate. Rather than strive for maximum legibility or a perfect reproduction, Niessen & de Vries transformed each issue into a distinct portrait. An essay by Els Kuijpers examines communicative design in the broader context of the production of meaning.
