Typex’s magnum opus, a biography of Rembrandt in the form of a graphic novel, opens with images of an elephant. Burly yet vulnerable, ungainly yet with kind eyes: this is how Typex depicts the elephant as a metaphor for one of the giants of the painting world, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669).

Zes anekdotes uit het leven van Moses Mendelssohn

(Scratch Books, 2022, 88 pagina's)

Following the lively masterpieces Rembrandt and Andy, Typex has put together a small but phenomenal biography of the philosopher Moses ‘Moishe’ Mendelssohn. The book homes in on six key episodes in the life of the Jewish philosopher who came to be known as the ‘Socrates of Berlin’. This approach results in an engaging, compelling introduction to Mendelssohn, whose philosophy remains influential to this day.
