Rare. Edited by Geigy's advertisng director Markus Kutter and designed by Karl Gerstner for Geigy's 200th anniversary in 1958, this notable book was part of a two-volume set (Geigy 1758 bis 1939 is the other volume). This landmark book “not only exemplified the new Swiss book design – square format, square-backed, headings and text typeset in unjustified grotesque – it also set new standards for information design in its statistical charts, ingenious diagrams of management structures and departmental organization.” (R. Hollis, Swiss Graphic Design, 2006). Printed in Switzerland.

Nearly fine condition with its' original cardboard slipcase. The black text has been rubbed on the spine and (2) pages (17/18, XXV/XXVI) have been cut as half-sheets (presumably a printers error, see image 3 and 13).
