ABC Verlag (Edition) was a book publisher based in Zurich, Switzerland that released a superb collection of graphic design and fine art books between 1962-1989. I’ve been personally obsessed with these books and have been on a hunt for them for the last 4 years. They contain some of the best graphic design of the last century, and each book covers a different topic.
I recently uploaded photos to my Flickr of my three most recent additions to my collection:
History of the Poster – 1971 – Josef Müller-Brockmann
Design Concept Realisation – 1975 – Wolfgang Schmittel
Color Sells Your Package – 1969 – J.P. Favre
I can get lost in this stuff for days.

Thanks for uploading – beautiful work. But the posters are all missing the massive line of sponsor logos, web url’s, twitter and facebook links. What were they thinking?
And thank you for that! I’ve been looking for these, and your photos have at least allowed me a glimpse into some of them.
I wish someone would reprint some of these titles!
I remeber when I found History of the Poster in a local bookstore. Amazing collection and great study/source of inspiration.
The books are collected on this pool:
