The New Graphic Art by Karl Gerstner and Markus Kutter (Hastings House Publishers / 1959)
Classic and now hard-to-come-by theoretical manifesto of the revolutionary new Modernist design and typography emanating out of Switzerland in the 1950s. Square-format (23.5 x 23.5 cms) hardback. Interior pages are clean, unmarked and free from notes, underlining and inscriptions. Some frayoing of cloth binding along back edge of spine and some minor splitting of binding along inside front cover and opening endpaper. Complete with card slipcase which exhibits moderate signs of shelfwear including bumping of exterior corners, some soiling of yellow frontage and some sunning of lower section of back. In Good+ condition overall. More photos available upon request.
