Klim Type Specimen No. 04

21 February 2012

Klim Type Specimen No.4 designed by The International Office in Wellington, New Zealand. 

290 × 400mm, printed black on newsprint.

We had often discussed with Kris doing a type specimen on newsprint. His previous specimens were small booklets so we thought this was a good opportunity to print on a larger scale. We agreed the talk “A Search for Tradition” Douglas Lilburn gave in 1946 was a good fit with how we think of New Zealand design. Lilburn talks about how we have no musical tradition as we are a young remote country. Like magpies we take the good things we get to experience from larger creative eco systems.
