This illustrated essay traces the history of one of the leading exponents of
" Swiss Graphic Design " in the 1950s and 1960s. Josef Müller-Brockmann's
posters have become world famous for their ability to convey information with
great visual tension, a sense of drama, and an extreme economy of means.
He created a body of work in which timeless principles of visual communication
are inscribed. In addition to the posters, the image part presents examples
of logotypes, appearances, and exhibitions as well as numerous lesser-known
works in chronological order.
