Richard Hollis,b. 1934 in London, has become firmly established as a major figure of Anglo-Saxon graphic design. His collaborations with artists (Steve McQueen, Bridget Riley), art critics (John Berger) and institutions (Whitechapel Art Gallery) have resulted in some remarkable publications which highlight not only his strong attachment to the art world, but also his commitments to the editorial or political press (New Society, New Middle East). Some 200 works taken from his personal archives, including notes, working documents and printed objects reveal Hollis’ original working method that remained all the time true to his objective: “a minimum of means to maximum effect”.
