Josef Müller-Brockmann
The Graphic Artist and his Design Problems
German/English/French, 200 pages, 735 illustrations, 26 x 22.5 cm, cloth binding with jacket. Müller-Brockmann’s book aimed to solve the graphic designer’s problem of finding the appropriate contemporary form. It became a standard work that still serves as a historic practical guide well beyond the boundaries of Switzerland. This edition is an unabbreviated reconstruction of the original edition of 1961, as a hardcover with jacket. It includes the additions made by Josef Müller-Brockmann himself for the paperback edition of 1983. In the first part, the path from illustrative to functional graphic design is traced, as well as the meaning of design elements, their use and effect in every area of advertising: business printed matter, advertisements, brochures, books, posters, and exhibitions. The middle section of the book contains fundamental thoughts concerning the work of the graphic designer. The chapter “Science and Visual Communication” covers the area of semiotics and communications research. In the last part, the systematic education of the graphic designer is presented by means of a comprehensive documentation. Thus, the book offers graphic designers a valuable survey of the fundamental tasks of design.

Lurker Grand
Die Not hat ein Ende – The Swiss Art of Rock
“Need Comes To an End” – The Swiss Art of Rock” is Lurker Grand’s third and most recent book project in a trilogy published by Edition Patrick Frey. As already in 2006 in Hot Love – Swiss Punk & Wave 1976 – 1980 and 2012 in Heute und danach – The Swiss Underground Music Scene of the 80s, this new book is concerned with only one thing: the history of rock music in Switzerland. Here the focus is not so much on a musical era and its protagonists as on the visualization of the subcultures. Designers, graphic designers, musicians, and photographers from across Switzerland visualize the last 50 years of local rock and pop music history through their album covers, concert posters, flyers, fanzines, comics, and photographs. Die Not hat ein Ende – The Swiss Art of Rock is not just another colorful book about music, but instead an impressive historical document of an era. It is a fulsome work that pays tribute to the aesthetics of this anar-chic artistic avantgarde from its beginnings to the present day. In addition to visualizing the music, a lot of space is devoted to the history of the music itself. Music journalist, collector, and curator Samuel Mumenthaler, coauthor of this book, describes the development of rock music in Switzerland chronologically and very precisely, but without getting lost in the details. Roland Fischbacher, Director of the Visual Communications program at the Bern School for the Arts, and Robert Lzicar, Design researcher and designer, discuss the evolution of the visual appearance of rock culture from its beginnings to the present day. This is a pioneering work that no one in Switzerland has undertaken to date. The book also recounts anecdotes that have made it from Switzerland into the annals of international rock history.

Young-Old – Deane Simpson
Urban Utopias of an Aging Society
Young-Old examines contemporary architectural and urban mutations that have emerged as a consequence of one of the key demographic transformations of our time: aging populations. Distinguishing between different phases of old age, the book identifies the group known as the “young old” as a remarkable petri dish for experiments in subjectivity, collectivity, and environment. In investigating this field of latent urban and architectural novelty, Young-Old asserts both the escapist and emancipatory dimensions of these practices. Richly illustrated with drawings, maps, and photographs, the volume documents phenomena ranging from the continuous, golf-cart-accessible urban landscapes of the world’s largest retirement community in Florida and the mono-national urbanizaciones of “the retirement home of Europe” on Costa del Sol, to the Dutch-themed residential community at Huis Ten Bosch in the south of Japan.

Experimental Design: Visual
Methods and Systematic Play
How does the creativity in art and design develop? In the five chapters Basis, Interpretation, Variation, Relation and Sequence, numerous methodical design approaches are presented, leading first to variety and then to new ideas. The diversity and often surprising nature of the results is, in a large part, due to the many different processes through which they are shaped. Armin Lindauer and Betina Müller have spent many decades searching for, collecting and compiling works that generate creative design solutions by means of methodical processes in the form of experiments. Their discoveries stem from entirely different sectors such as advertising, product design, poster design, art and even science. Historical works such as those of Courbet, Monet, Jawlensky, Picasso, Albers and the Bechers are also discussed and considered, along with works by famous, contemporary designers, for example, Daniele Buetti, Günther Kieser, Uwe Loesch or Stefan Sagmeister. With more than 3000 illustrations, Experimental Design is a visual book of non-fiction for everyone who is interested in the process behind the development of ideas and fancies.

Many barely noticed everyday objects have a massive impact on the environment.

Jost Hochuli: Printed Matter, mainly books
212 pages, 600 illustrations, 29.2 x 19.8 cm, Hardcover, English/German
Jost Hochuli: Printed Matter, Mainly Books. Jost Hochuli is a man of words. Not perhaps literally, for he is a typographer, a book designer, and a graphic designer, as he is happy to describe himself. Although book design is only a part of his activities, it is this in particular that has made him well-known. This book contains some of his graphic design work, as well as his lettering cut in wood and lino, demonstrating that two apparently irreconcilable design approaches can have synthesis in many of Hochuli's books.

Neue Schriften. New Typefaces.
248 pages, numerous type specimens, 17 x 22,5 cm, German/English
Neue Schriften. New Typefaces. offers insight into the fascinating world of type design. Positions in contemporary type design are presented in words and pictures: key protagonists offer insights into their thinking and working, take a position on current developments under the new technical, aesthetic and socio-political conditions. While in the 1970s just a few hundred new typefaces were published, today we can choose from tens of thousands of fonts — with an upward tendency. This publication, however, shows that current type design is not subject to randomness or a fashionable hype. Seventy different type designs present an overview of current developments.

H. Rudolf Bosshard: Max Bill kontra Jan Tschichold
120 pages, 15 x 22 cm, linen cloth with jacket, German
Sobald es um Ästhetik geht, also um nicht exakt abwägbare Dinge, sind unterschiedliche, ja kontroverse Haltungen unvermeidlich. Immer wieder äusserten sich Exponenten der Typografie zur Eignung von Schriften, zur Anwendung von Ornamenten oder zum optimalen Satzspiegel. Hans Rudolf Bosshard gibt dazu einige historische Beispiele – von Bodoni und Bertuch zu Morris und Morison –, um dann auf den sogenannten «Typografiestreit der Moderne» zwischen Max Bill und Jan Tschichold von 1946 zu kommen. Der Disput schlug schon damals einige Wogen und stösst bis heute – nicht nur im deutschen, sondern auch im angelsächsischen Sprachbereich – auf breites Interesse. 
Auslöser war ein Vortrag Tschicholds mit dem Titel «Konstanten der Typografie», in dem er der früher geübten und theoretisch verfochtenen «neuen Typografie» abschwor und für die Wiederaufnahme traditioneller Gestaltungsformen sprach. Max Bill war enttäuscht über den Sinneswandeldes einstigen Vorreiters der «neuen Typografie» und sah in der Rückkehr zur traditionellen Typografie einen Angriff auf die Moderne. Beide machten einander (aus entgegengesetzter Position und völlig ungerechtfertigt) den Vorwurf, nationalsozialistischer Ästhetik nahezustehen. Der heftige Schlagabtausch, der hier erstmals detailliert vorgestellt wird, erfolgte in den «Schweizer Typographischen Mitteilungen». 
Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und einem Nachwort von Jost Hochuli.
