Max Bill by Max Bill( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A true Renaissance man with a clear, unified aesthetic vision, the Swiss artist, designer, architect and writer Max Bill combined the virtues of homo faber and homo ludens throughout his intensely productive career, launching the Concrete art movement and establishing himself as the single most decisive influence on postwar Swiss graphic design. This gorgeously designed, hefty volume--the most thorough Bill overview ever published in English, and the only monograph in print--presents Bill's oeuvre both chronologically and thematically, across every facet of his multifaceted oeuvre: painting, graphic art, sculpture, architecture, book and magazine design, industrial and furniture design, graphic design and advertising typography--from large-format posters to small inserts in periodicals--as well as his designs for exhibition spaces. Bill stands out for his enormous influence on Latin American geometric art (through his 1951 retrospective at the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art), as well as for his essays, his work as an educator and his political and social concerns. All these aspects of his life and work are covered in this profusely illustrated catalogue, along with essays by scholars and a selection of previously unpublished essays by Bill himself."--

Max Bill's view of things : Die gute Form : an exhibition 1949 by Jakob Bill( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The special exhibition 'Die gute Form', put on by the Swiss Werkbund (SWB) at the Basel trade fair in 1949, was an event that caused a furor far beyond Switzerland's borders. The renowned architect, designer, and graphic artist Max Bill was the mastermind behind the idea and personally selected the exhibits and designed their setting. Eighty exhibition panels showed consumer objects of exemplary design, from a teacup to the jet plane. Bill recognized the emerging, American-style commodity aesthetic that was making inroads into Switzerland and postwar Europe and sought to confront it with a specifically "Swiss" aesthetic shaped by a desire to create long-lasting forms. This publication documents Bill's initiative by presenting the original exhibition panels and Ernst Scheidegger's photographs of the installation, places this famous design show in a theoretical and design-historical context, examines its background, and creates a link to the publishing house's first publication from 1983
