"Few have left a deeper impression on the world of typography than Jan Tschichold (1902-1974), one of the most outstanding and influential designers of the twentieth century. Not only was he a master in his field, but he also lectured on the subject, wrote a number of highly influential books and became instrumental in promoting the modernist design strategy called the New Typography. This substantial volume covers Tschihold's life and career, placing the designer's vision firmly in the rich cultural and historical context of his era."--Jacket
