    The classic finely printed, richly illustrated monograph on the Danish graphic design pioneer Knud Valdemar Engelhardt (1882–1931) “Denmark’s first industrial designer. Influenced by the architect Thorvald Bindesbøll, Engelhardt understood that successful production depended on both an industrial and a graphical approach. The font he developed for Gentofte’s road signs is sensitive and personal but also eminently readable. From 1908 to 1910, he designed electric trams for Copenhagen with intricate detail. The vehicles were functional and cleanable in all weathers, and were well manufactured. Although Engelhardt was an architect, he also exerted a considerable influence on the development of Danish billboards and graphic design traditions. More than anyone else, Engelhardt paved the way for a Danish approach to design and industrial production
