The Bonus Room

Graphic designer Bart de Baets contributes to THE PALACE OF TYPOGRAPHIC MASONRY with a collection of graphic images that form a contemporary symbolic order. 'The Bonus Room' brings together a number of ubiquitous clich├ęs from popular and commercial culture, a selection from a huge pool of banal landmarks that you can encounter on the street.

De Baets' collection is connected in some way, but not in a functional mechanism such as an alphabet. In three parts ('It's a sign', 'I made it' and 'Lock up, Lock down') you are taken in a humorous way through a world that you know and influences you, but which rarely stands out consciously due to its everydayness.
