30 Years of Swiss Typographic Discourse in the Typografische Monatsblätter

Lars Müller Pub­lish­ers is really killing it this year with all these great titles. The just released title 30 Years of Swiss Typo­graphic Dis­course in the Typografis­che Monats­blät­ter explores the influ­en­tial design jour­nal Typografis­che Monats­blät­ter from 1960 – 90. The book includes works from design­ers such as Emil Ruder, Hel­mut Schmid, Wolf­gang Wein­gart, Hans-Rudolf Lutz, Jost Hochuli and many others.

Def­i­nitely a must-have for any design­ers library.

Typographische Monatsblätter Research Archive

Typographische Monatsblatter Research Archive

Pre­pare to spend the rest of your day on this site. TM Research Archive is an incred­i­ble web­site that cat­a­logs cover designs of the influ­en­cial jour­nal, Typographis­che Monats­blät­ter. The site focuses on the issues from 1960 to 1990, the period that had the most influ­ence on mod­ern typog­ra­phy, and it fea­tures inter­views with design­ers that have con­tributed to the pub­li­ca­tion over the years, as well infor­ma­tion on the designer and type­face used for each issue.

The site was cre­ated by Louise Par­adis as part of her Mas­ter degree in Art Direc­tion at the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lau­sanne, Switzer­land. The project con­tin­ued with the finan­cial sup­port from ECAL and the Uni­ver­sity of Applied Sci­ences and Arts West­ern Switzerland.

All of the issues pho­tographed were from the pri­vate col­lec­tion of Jean-Pierre Graber, the chief edi­tor of TM for over twenty years.

The site gives you a great sense of how the design evolved over the decades. My per­sonal favorites are the cov­ers designed by Yves Zim­mer­mann, Emil Ruder, Robert Büch­ler and Felix Berman.

What an amaz­ing resource to have avail­able to design­ers. Thank you Louise.

Exclusive: Process 4.5

I’m super excited about this exclu­sive AisleOne fea­ture. The fine folks at Process have released a spe­cial edi­tion pub­li­ca­tion titled: Process 4.5.

Process 4.5 is the first in a series of spe­cial edi­tion Process pub­li­ca­tions. Printed in only black on light­weight 70gsm Bond, Process 4.5 pur­posely con­trasts the usual high pro­duc­tion qual­i­ties of the quar­terly jour­nal, as well act­ing as a plat­form to exper­i­ment with dif­fer­ent for­mats and pro­duc­tion tech­niques. The publication’s con­tent is a reflec­tion and ret­ro­spec­tive of the first four edi­tions of Process Journal.

Con­sist­ing of three major parts, the first a com­pre­hen­sive essay writ­ten by typog­ra­pher and design-lecturer Brad Hay­lock. The sec­ond a typo­graphic analy­sis of each of the type­faces fea­tured in edi­tions one to four, includ­ing type sam­ples and spec­i­mens. And finally, a selec­tion of con­trib­u­tors from edi­tions one to four were asked a sim­ple ques­tion: What is your process?. Includ­ing responses from Brett Phillips (3 Deep Design), Michael C. Place (Build), Mason Wells (Bib­lio­thèque), Tom Crab­tree (Manual),Tony Brook (Spin) and more..
