This book is another outstanding example of beautiful, clean cut book layout and one that has contributed to the ideas behind my designs. The book is about the history of a Swiss Typography magazine and shows the past and present layout techniques that the designers of the magazine chose to bestow upon the publication. Some of the designs are edgy and colourful where others are more formalised and simplistic. The way some of the designs are laid out are also similar to the portraiture book I looked at – Double Take: Portraits from the Keith Medley Archive which is another book I’m using as an influential aspect of my designs.
