    Got this book as a gift and it s a pretty nice book The pages are filled with great examples of Swiss design.I would definitely say this book makes a strong addition to any graphic designer art director because of the breadth of examples in the book Note that this is or less historical in that the examples are not contemporary but spanning about 100 years of Swiss design hence the title.One thing that really bothers me is the hard cover It s definitely not a paperback but it s definitely not a hardcover either It has the consistency of soggy cardboard and bends really easily That s the best I can explain it I can see humidity being a problem for this book along with carelessness can cause breaks in the cover I just wished the cover quality matched the paper inside, which was pretty decent.But all in all, great book to read through.

    This the second book of Swiss design sponsored by the Museum fur Gestaltung in Zurich The first title covered graphic design, this book has a much broader scope looking at product design though it does concentrate on consumer rather commercial products The book is divided into decades and because some design trends and style don t stop and start so neatly some of the essays look at their subject in a broader way, for example in the chapter devoted to the 1930s Arthur Ruegg writes about The New light 100 years of Swiss lighting design The ground breaking product exhibition Die gute form created by Max Bill in 1949 is another example of design that influenced designers and the public in the following decades.Each decade starts with a mini photo portfolio followed by products that get a page each with relevant text and captions The illustrated essays are mixed in with these product pages I thought the choice of illustrations about seven hundred throughout the book was excellent, products are shown in use plus studio shots, designer concept drawings and graphics connected to the product.Like the other book on graphic design this one is beautifully designed and printed, the upright shape of both books give them an air of credibility The back pages have a very comprehensive bibliography followed by an Index and biographies of the sixteen contributors I think it s worth mentioning the translation by Jennifer Taylor, she has done a first class job turning the original text into everyday English.The perfect overview of Swiss design culture over the decades.
