Calligraffiti - The Graphic Art of Niels “SHOE” Meulman’ is an impressive publication that presents a large selection of typographic works by Niels Shoe Meulman arranged in a uniquely simplistic manner; every spread presents two interacting visuals on its opposing pages. This repeating duality makes this book much more than just a collection of the artist’s best work; it unveils the basis of all graphic art.
The print finish on Calligraffiti’s cover is particularly eye-catching. A strong white masthead made with custom lettering by Niels Meulman is pressed into thick, black stock. The white type is then finished with a cello glaze to maximise its shine and contrast. There’s no paragraph on the back cover explaining who Meulman is or what the book might include. Instead, you will find 12 of Meulman’s most interesting logotypes. This decision is somewhat unconventional, as it leaves the content of the book fairly unknown to the average reader. However, it lets the work do the talking and invites those who are curious to open the book for more.

Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, “Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.” So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.
Paul Klee ( Swiss: 1879 – 1940), Small Picture of Fir Trees, 1922, 40 x 25 cm
Beauty is as relative as light and dark. Thus, there exists no beautiful woman, none at all, because you are never certain that a still far more beautiful woman will not appear and completely shame the supposed beauty of the first.
— Paul Klee
