Jan Tschichold, designer: the Penguin years
Jan Tschichold, Designer: The Penguin Years is the first publication that focuses on Tschicholds typographic revolution that he applied to Penguins mass production of books.This well-researched work includes over a hundred full-color and black & white images representing a wide range of the Penguin Book Series that Tschichold was involved with during the mid to late 1940's. Many of Tschicholds preliminary hand drawn cover and title page designs are published here for the first time and show his meticulous attention to detail. The author explains, with many illustrations, the influences that drove Tschichold and his New Typography. Jan Tschichold, Designer: The Penguin Years also includes an extensive bibliography on Tschicholds writings and historical appendices of his inter-office memoranda and texts. The Book is essential reading for the specialized professional, student, and enthusiast who works in the typography, book design, or publishing industry. Co-Published with Lund Humphries, UK.
