Nothing about Dutch graphic design duo Mevis & van Deursen conforms to type. Praised for their innovative but clear presentation, they have designed everything from artist’s books for Gabriel Orozco and Rineke Dijkstra to an official government stamp commemorating the marriage of Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, based on the number two, since the wedding date was 02-02-02. This book represents a range of work from the past 15 years, mostly books but also posters and smaller pieces. However, the artists have chosen not simply to present the work again but to make it new through collage and re-interpretative interplay, thus «recycling» their innovative designs.
