First opus of this collection by swiss printer & publisher ABC druckerei+verlags.
In 1963, the swiss graphic style was at its zenith but remains no so popular around the world, even if the most popular graphic designer like Muller-Brockmann, Ruder or Hofmann were concidered like great authors.
The layout is based into a 4 columns grid: 3 columns for each language and 1 for animating the layout.
The first chapters, are build on a large column, offering a quiet rythm that we never see again in the collection.
