Teufen, Arthur Niggli; 1957 19x20cm. First edition.
Very good condition.
The first published book of Karl Gestner, a survey of the school of concrete-constructive abstract painting to which he belongs.
Karl Gerstner (1930-2017) was a typographer, designer, and self-taught artist. Much of his time he lived and worked in Hippolskirch (Alsace- Lorraine, France), but Basel (Switzerland) was his main location. He was also an excellent writer on topics of design and art.
Gerstner was part of the second wave of Swiss typography. He studied under Emil Ruder and Armin Hofmann. Hofmann proceeded Ruder as head of the graphic design department at the Basel School of Design. His education thus took place during a highly noted creative movement in Typography. Ref.1
