Book: Swiss Graphic Design

Title: Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style 1920-1965
Author: Richard Hollis
Publisher: Lawrence King
ISBN: 1-85669-475-5
The next book I am buying. The thing I like about Richard Hollis is it's not always about big. Some of the brilliant things in this book are the small works in the margins. There's something beautiful about a thumbnail image which appeals to me, especially when you lean in and see that some austere design is for a plumbing part or a whisk. It's full of hundred of great images and great people like Karl Gerstner.
