An ambitious publication in scope and specification, the book presents the total design output of one of the world's most talented and sought-after graphic designers. Presented loosely chronologically and with candid commentary throughout, this large-scale publication reveals a fascinating journey from Bantjes's early work as a typesetter to her adoption of digital technologies that push conventional print production to the limit.
