It is too bad for those who do not speak or read French that this new collection of essays, Otl Aicher’s le monde comme projet, published by Éditions B42 in Paris, has not been translated as yet. It is a literate collection of writings on Aicher’s engagement with typographic modernism.
Éditions B42 has also produced a handsome series of books on graphic design and typography featuring Catherine de Smet, Jost Hochuli, Robin Kinross, Norman Potter, Fred Smeijers and Gerard Unger. So if you are looking to stock your library of design literature, visit them here.
