Translated by Ruari McLean. From the Introduction by W. E. Trevett, "Wherever typographers gather the subject of Jan Tschichold has to come up. He is the Rosetta Stone of our field. Without his experiments in both symmetric and asymmetric design we would all be back, fiddling around with the Private Press Movement or artistic rule-bending. Without his positive commitments we would be amateur gentlemen doing pretty little variations on whatever period in the history of typography happened to catch our fancy." Extensively illustrated including one fold-out. Very minor soiling to jacket with a few short tears to edges with one small chip at back.
