Published by the Berthold Type Foundry, this catalog illustrates Celestino Piatti's graphic designs for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (DTV) of Munich using exclusively, the typeface Akzidenz–Grotesk (regular, bold and super bold) for book covers, posters, brochures and advertising. Since 1961, Piatti created a uniformed identity featuring AG set in black against a white background usually paired with colorful illustrations. This catalog features approx. 45 examples in b/w and color. Piatti gave DTV its unique look for over 30 years, and created the image, still unforgotten, of these white paperbacks with their right-justifed AG typeface and characteristic cover illustrations.

A near fine softcover with light wear to the covers.
