Non-Russian Collections

Large Collection of books, pamphlets, posters and other graphics designed by Fré Cohen

Frederika Sophia Cohen (1903-1943), known as Fré Cohen, was an accomplished Dutch graphic designer. This collection of her book designs, pamphlets, posters and other graphics is representative of her entire career, from the age of 20 until shortly before her suicide while in Nazi custody. Despite substantial attention to her work in the Netherlands, and an archive of her original artwork at the Stedelijk Museum, Cohen and the books she designed are virtually unknown in the United States.
