Birkhauser Verlag, Basel, Switzerland, 10.75 x 7.75", 224 pp., English / German
A beautifully designed and written book on the Basel master designer/educator, Armin Hofmann. Text by Paul Rand, Will Burtin and Hofmann (among others). Profusely illustrated with 11 color and 187 b/w plates including: posters, logos, typographic work, orientation systems and three-dimensional designs for public buildings. Highly recommended!
Signed by Armin Hofmann on front free endpaper. A good white cloth hardcover with water staining to the outside of the front/back cloth. The dampness has extended to the interior bottom portion (approx. 1/4") of the pages throughout (it does not affect the images). In a complete, good dust jacket that has also been affected by water, resulting in waviness throughout. Despite these flaws, still a solid copy of a difficult volume to find. Condition reflected in price.
