Vivarelli, June 1961. Walter–Verlag AG, Olten, Switzerland. 9.75 x 11, pp. 64 plus covers with German, English and French text.
Published quarterly from 1958-1965 (17 issues, 18 numbers; issue 17/18 was a double issue), Neue Grafik was the most important journal responsible for disseminating contemporary and historical Swiss functional design ideas and philosophies. The journal’s sparse cover, rigorous structure and four-column grid (which extends to the interior pages) is designed entirely of text; meant to inform rather than illustrate the issues content.
Heavily illustrated with noteworthy content: Piet Zwart: A Pioneer of Functional Typography by Dr. H. L. C. Jaffé, Graphic Design on the Railway by Hans Neuburg, From Beer mat to Facade (Nelly Rudin, Schwaben Bräu) by Hans Neuburg, A Handbook for Graphic Designers by Hans Neuburg, Recent New Year Greeting Cards by LMNV, Publicity Cards by LMNV, and Publicity Material for the Zurich University Students' Ball by Peter Andermatt. Full-page advertising by Geigy and others.
A very good, original periodical with lightly soiled white covers and a small crease. Single issues available, please reach out if you are in search of a specific issue.
