Josef Müller-Brockmann: Pioneer of Swiss Graphic Design
This richly illustrated book traces Josef Müller-Brockmann's practice, illuminating the history of one of the leading exponents of Swiss Graphic Design in the 1950s and 1960s. While his posters are renowned for their ability to convey information with great visual tension, a sense of drama, and an extreme economy of means, his larger body of work relied on timeless principles of visual communication. This book presents—in addition to posters—Müller-Brockmann's logotypes, preliminary sketches, and foundational grids alongside documentary photographs of various appearances and exhibitions. Also included are numerous lesser-known works in chronological order.
