Title: Graphis Diagrams
Editor: Walter Herdeg
Publisher: Graphis Press Corporation
ISBN: 3 85709 410 9
To my mind Graphis Diagrams has to be one of the seminal publications on diagrams. Less acedemic than Tufte, this book showcases a wealth of styles from the crazy to the intensely Swiss. Here are some of my favourite parts.
William Hedges/William Newton's Task magazine for the Ontario Department of Labour
Atilier Stankowski's Fördertechnik magazine for A. Stotz AG
Walter Allner's Fortune magazine
Covers from the Boehringer Pharmaceutical Company: Naturwissenschaft und Medizin (Natural Science and Medicine) designed by Erwin Poell in the 60/70s.
