Reviews

"Considered the modernist era's definitive treatise on typographic design, it [The New Typography] offers not only an overview of the principles of commercial and book design but also a historical--and far from ideologically neutral--discussion of "old" (1450-1914) and "new" (since 1914) typography. The book's exceptional fame is due to its own typographic achievement, as well as to its commitment to the politics of modern typography, defined as both the mirror and the condition of a modern social democracy in the machine age. . . . a book that can and should retain a strong appeal for a 21st-century readership."-- "Leonardo"
"A splendid examination of classical Modernist design. . . . The New Typography is an outstanding source of inspiration, which . . . deserves every inch of its legendary status."-- "Computer Arts Projects"
