Today, we introduce Joost Grootens, a self-taught graphic designer who has created several design books for architecture, urban space and art, and even specializing on atlases, designing both the maps and the books themselves. Grootens’ “I swear I use no art at all” is a design book that covers his work over that span of 10 years, 100 books, and roughly 18,000 pages as he dissects, graphs, charts, maps, and gives personal accounts behind the ideas of his designs.
