Adrian Frutiger - Typefaces by Heidrun Osterer; Philipp Stamm; Schweizerische Stiftung Schrift und Typographie (Editor)The international creation of typefaces after 1950 was decisively influenced by the Swiss type designer Adrian Frutiger. His Univers typeface and the machine-readable font OCR-B, which was adopted as an ISO standard, are milestones, as is his type for the Paris airports, which set new standards for signage types and evolved into the Frutiger typeface. With his corporate types, he helped to define the public profiles of companies such as the Japanese Shiseido line of cosmetics. In all he created some fifty types, including Ondine, Méridien, Avenir, and Vectora. Based on conversations with Frutiger himself and on extensive research in France, England, Germany, and Switzerland, this publication provides a highly detailed and accurate account of the type designer's artistic development. All of his types - from the design phase to the marketing stage - are illustrated and analyzed with reference to the technology and related types. Hitherto unpublished types that were never realized and more than one hundred logos complete the picture. This second, revised and expanded study edition, which now has an index, makes Frutiger's achievement even more accessible.

Dutch Typography in the Sixteenth Century by Paul Valkema Blouw; A. R. A. Croiset van Uchelen (Editor); Paul Dijstelberge (Editor)When compiling a short-title catalogue, Paul Valkema Blouw was confronted with a large number of 'problem cases'. By minute analysis and drawing from his extensive knowledge and his unrivalled typographic memory, he could attribute a surprising number of these publications to a printer and established the periods when and places where they must have been printed.The present collection of papers is of paramount importance to scholars engaged in research of the sixteenth century, whether in the field of church history, national history or book history.
