Details

RRP: $114.99

In the first book on Tschichold to be based on extensive archive research, Burke turns fresh and revealing light on Tschichold.

He sets his subject in the network of artists and designers who constituted New Typography in its moment of definition and exploration, and puts new emphasis on Tschichold as an activist collector, editor and writer.

Tschichold’s work is shown in colour throughout, in freshly made photographs of examples drawn from public and private collections.

This is not a biography, but rather a discussion of the work seen in the context of Tschichold’s life and the times in which he lived.
