‘Body Type’ – The legendary nude girls alphabet by Anthon Beeke, newly published. Anthon Beeke designed the alphabet as an answer to the now as much celebrated New Alphabet by Wim Crouwel from 1967.

ISBN 9789081785907, the retail price was € 125.

Body Type is the re-issue of the legendary nude girls alphabet by Anthon Beeke from 1969. For the first time in colour and supplemented with numerals. Naked Numbers. Again with slender female bodies just like then and with the firm bodies of black boys, as an expression of the times we live in today.

Body Type contains three segments: the letters of ‘then’ and the numerals of today, printed on separate pages, a notebook with the story about the creation and history of the alphabet, and a block with the letters on small cards with which you can make letter garlands to bring the alphabet to life in words and text. With a prologue by Wim Crouwel and an introduction by Willem Ellenbroek. Designed by René Knip.
