It brings together essays, discussions, and appraisals from fellow designers, typographers, and artists – yielding a comprehensive survey of Ruder’s accomplishments.

It engages with the designer’s many years of work and teaching in Basel, his thirty years as publisher of the magazine Typografische Monatsblätter as well as his posters, typefaces, and philosophy.

The extraordinary and comprehensive presentation of the life and works of Swiss typographic legend Emil Ruder sold out shortly after coming off the press.

Initially published in 2009 the issue is now available in its original version updated with new writing from Michael Renner and Lars Müller.

Edited by Helmut Schmid, in collaboration with the Basel School of Design
