Dutch, Jewish and socialist graphic and typographic designer,
woodblock and ex-libris printer.
Forgetting this ploughing farmer by this important Dutch artist in last post I haste myself in correcting this omission. This ex-libris besides also has the Hebrew words from Proverbs of the Fathers (Avot 2:15): the day is long and the work vast.
Besides designing and printing ex-libris',
Fré Cohen's work was also commisioned by the City of Amsterdam and other Governemental Institutions.
This "Giroboekje" (personal cheque book) a very typical and very familiar example of Dutch Art Deco.
Her very delicate type fonts (named Freco) are considered typical Dutch Art Deco and to this today are still in use in artwork and is taught in art schools.
