Bart Boumans was born on February 12th, 1940. He was trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arnhem and the Free Academy in The Hague. Bart Boumans makes graphic art for books, typewritten graphic experiments and drawings. Together with two other graphic designers he runs a letterpress workshop in Amsterdam where the old craft is still practiced. [artist bio from poster verso].
"The Quadrat-Prints are a series of experiments in printing ranging over the fields of graphic design, the plastic arts, literature, architecture and music. They are edited by Pieter Brattinga and are not for sale."
"The Quadrat-Prints appear at irregular intervals. They are published only after the most stringent requirements of intellectual and technical production have been met."
Steendrukkerij De Jong & Co. published 34 Quadrat-Prints between 1955 and 1974, with Brattinga serving as general editor and individual designers given free reign with their chosen subjects in the visual arts, literature, music, architecture, typography, etc. None of these publications were for sale -- they were distributed to friends and business associates by De Jong as elaborate self-promotions.
