Typographie v1

Walter Marti, Walter Bangerter

This richly produced survey showcases Swiss printing technologies, circa 1948 and the contemporary design work of the two author/designer/publishers. All of the examples are beautifully printed in various techniques on a wide variety of paper stocks with many post-press effects, such as engraving, embossing, debossing, perforating, tipped-in samples. Includes samples of Letterhead produced expressly for this publication, printed on the paper originally specified by the designers/typographers; business cards; menus; wine Labels; Ex-Libris labels tipped-in; posters; advertising work for several clients, and much more. Walter Bangerter later wrote a definitive early study of Swiss Graphic Design: Offizielle Schweizer Grafik. Arts graphiques officiels en Suisse. Official graphic art in Switzerland Zurich: ABC Verlag, 1964.
