Jost Hochuli has been working as a freelance graphic designer since 1959. Although book design forms only a small part of his activity, he has become well-known particularly through this work. Besides his book designs, several of his commercial artwork pieces and typefaces are pictured in this volume.
The book is thus the ultimate synthesis of Hochuli’s works. It is structured in three thematic blocks “Commercial Graphic Design”, “Typefaces Cut in Wood and Linoleum” and “Books” which are accompanied by theoretical texts while generously documented by numerous examples from Hochuli’s work.
