In progress: Marie Neurath and Isotype books exhibition and learning resources

In collaboration with the University of Reading

Jan 2017

We are collaborating with the University of Reading’s Department of Typography & Graphic Communication on a project to raise the profile of children’s books produced by Marie Neurath and her team at the Isotype Institute between the late 1940s and early 1970s. The project ‘follows on’ from the ‘Isotype revisited’ research project (2007–2011),

As part of the project we intend to curate and design the first major exhibition of these books and the work behind them.

We’ll keep this post updated.
