Originally published in 1967, this book is composed of a main section of alphabet and number…

Rosmarie Tissi: Graphic Design

The designs of acclaimed Swiss graphic designer Rosmarie Tissi are characterised by an objectively clear yet undogmatic style. A defining aspect of Tissi’s work is her playful approach, combined with a predilection for bold colour contrasts, typeface, and geometrical shapes.
