Working under the pseudonym Letman, the Dutchman Job Wouters is internationally known for his trailblazing synthesis of illustration and lettering. Letman creates not only masterful decorative letters and typefaces, but also pioneers work that is a hybrid of graphic design, screen printing, graffiti, illustration, and painting.
Letman’s handmade lettering is clearly influenced by eastern character symbols. His typographic compositions have been featured in work for clients including Audi, Heineken, Dries Van Noten, Tommy Hilfiger, Eastpak, and Universal. Wouters’s editorial work can be seen in publications such as the New York Times Magazine, Playboy, It’s Nice That, and Creative Review.
Letman lives in Amsterdam and has won the coveted Dutch Design Award. This book is the first monograph of his work.
