Jan Tschichold - Master Typographer by Cees W. de Jong

Book Description

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 Tschicholds life and career, placing the designers 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 designers 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 Tschicholds heritage lives on in the digital age, and proving that he is amongst the greatest typographic designers ever.
