Charles Nypels


In the early twentieth century, Charles Nypels (1895 – 1952) from Maastricht [NL] became renowned at home and abroad as a typographer, publisher, printer, author and book artist. He is famous for his top-quality monumental classical design. Especially in classical typography, he deviated from existing typographical conventions. As a result, his work combines pure typography with important innovative elements highlighting inventiveness, playfulness and humour.
