Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

The most complete study ever of this major figure in modern graphic arts.

Few have left a deeper impression on the world of typography than Jan Tschichold (1902-1974), one of the most outstanding and influential designers of the twentieth century. Not only was he a master in his field, but he also lectured on the subject, wrote a number of highly influential books, and designed many classic typefaces, including the best-selling Sabon.

This substantial volume places Tschichold's vision firmly in the rich cultural and historical context of his era. In his introduction, Cees W. de Jong offers an overview of Tschichold's life and times, while the other contributors discuss the designer's major influences and innovations, including his seminal poster design, groundbreaking work with Penguin Books, and later reappropriation of classical typography.

Superbly illustrated with archive photographs and examples of Tschichold's work, the book confirms de Jong's assertion that "Tschichold's heritage lives on in the digital age, proving that he is among the greatest typographic designers ever, his influence still being visible in the world of typography to this day." The essays are by Jorre Both, Stefanie Burger, Martijn F. Le Coultre, Richard Doubleday, and Alston W. Purvis. 350 illustrations, 150 in color

Book Description: Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 328 x 239 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Few have left a deeper impression on the world of typography than Jan Tschichold (1902-74), one of the most outstanding and influential designers of the 20th century. Not only was he was a master in his field, but he wrote a number of highly influential books and became instrumental in promoting the modernist design strategy called the New Typography. This substantial volume covers Tschichold s life and career, placing the designer s vision firmly in the rich cultural and historical context of his era. Tschichold embraced avant-garde ideas from movements such as the Bauhaus and De Stijl and made them accessible to working designers and printers, stressing clarity in communication, with form and function going hand in hand.The contributing writers discuss the designer s major influences and the highlights of his varied career, including his seminal poster designs, his groundbreaking work with Penguin Books, and his creation of the classic typeface Sabon. Lavish illustrations - archive photographs, many published here for the first time, as well as copious examples of Tschichold s work - accompany the text, confirming that Tschichold s heritage lives on in the digital age, and proving that he is amongst the greatest typographic designers ever.
