100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design

This new book from Lars Müller Verlag takes a deep and sweeping look at Swiss typography, poster and book design, identity programs made over the past 100 years.

Graphic design from Switzerland reflects both international trends and local qualities; irony and wit are its constant companions. The view of one hundred years of graphic design shows both the diversity of current visual communication as well as the fine lines of tradition that connect works from different epochs. > Learn More
