Richard Hollis' Working Library
Marcus Campbell are pleased to announce our acquisition of the working library of Richard Hollis. A major British graphic designer, Hollis designed the quarterly journal Modern Poetry In Translation, became the art editor of the weekly magazine New Society and created John Berger’s Ways of Seeing He designed the visual identity and marketing material for the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. He also co-founded the School of Design at West of England College of Art. His 'Graphic Design. A Concise History' was published as part of the Thames & Hudson World of Art series in 2001 and 'Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style, 1920-1965' in 2006. Hollis's body of work consistently suggests a strong connection between graphic design and the cultural and social conditions that inspire it. In 2005 he was made one of the two hundred Royal Designers for Industry of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. While we are in the process of consolidating and cataloguing the library, we welcome anyone who may be interested in viewing this unique collection, and will be open to offers on any items as yet unpriced.
