Bruno Monguzzi: A Designer's Perspective
This book features the first American retrospective look at the Italian Swiss graphic designer and typographer Bruno Monguzzi (b. 1941), who has worked internationally since the 1960s. In addition to his award winning typographic design he designed nine pavilions for Expo '67 in Montreal. From 1986 to 1991, Monguzzi served as art consultant to the architecture and design magazine Abitare, published in Milan. Monguzzi’s work on the graphic identity and visual communications program for the Musée de Orsay in Paris (1986) led to his work for the Museo Cantonale d’Arte. Monguzzi has lectured extensively and is a member of the prestigious Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI).
Essayist Franc Nunoo-Quarcoo—whose own design work has been recognized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the American Center for Design, ID Magazine, Communication Arts Magazine, and the American Association of Museums—describes in detail Monguzzi's contributions to European design. The book also features images, interviews, biographical information, and appreciations by fellow designers, including Gone Federico, Rudolph deHarak, April Greiman, Ikko Tanaka, and Antonio Boggeri.
