The most comprehensive showing to date of the work of typography master Jan Tschichold—the father of New Typography. Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of Tschichold’s work at Ginza Graphic Gallery in 2013, this beautifully designed and printed book covers an immense amount of his output. Included are type designs, book covers from all stages of his career, poster designs, interior typographic layouts, and hundreds of rare Tschichold works—all photographed beautifully. The book also contains a new essay on the work of Tschichold by his biographer Christopher Burke, as well as an excellent essay on Tschichold’s interest and focus on Japan and Japanese aesthetics by Taro Yamamoto.
This title is highly recommended and is one of the most beautiful books we have ever carried, both in terms of content and design.
