   schema:reviewBody ""German typographer Paul Renner is best known as the designer of the typeface Futura, which stands as a landmark of modern graphic design. This is the first study of Renner's typographic career, detailing his life and work to reveal the breadth of his accomplishment and influence." "Renner was a central figure in the German artistic movements of the 1920s and 1930s, becoming an early and prominent member of the Deutscher Werkbund while creating his first book designs for various Munich-based publishers. As the author of numerous texts such as Typografie als Kunst (Typography as Art) and Die Kunst der Typographie (The Art of Typography) he created a new set of guidelines for balanced book design. Renner taught with Jan Tschichold in the 1930s and was a key participant in the heated ideological and artistic debates of that time. Arrested and dismissed from his post by the Nazis, he eventually emerged as a voice of experience and reason in the postwar years. Throughout this tumultuous period he produced a body of work of the highest distinction."--Jacket." ;
