(Preface) The administrative authorities need an abundance of printed matter and graphic work for both internal and external requirements. Apart from their very varied purposes, these means of imparting information should also bear witness to the lively spirit of both the authority and the community they serve. Where necessary, of course, they must express their official character - but in a way that is restrained and in good taste. Wherever the official aspect is not paramount, they should also arouse the recipient's approval. There have been times in which official publications were master- pieces of the printer's art and others in which they were perfect examples of bad taste. Today we are trying to give both the modest and representative printed matter of our city an outward appearance that is satisfying from the aesthetic as well as the objective point of view and also in harmony with the contemporary feeling for form so that it brings credit to Zurich. Emil Landolt
