(Review) 'A major study not only of Monguzzi’s career, but of graphic design history as well. The occasion is provided by Bruno Monguzzi’s fiftieth year of professional work, which he ironically describes as "fifty years of paper”. From his early professional work, first in London and then at the legendary Studio Boggeri in Milan in the early sixties, where Max Huber had arrived from Switzerland twenty years earlier, this monograph retraces the most significant phases of a language that has influenced graphic design well beyond Switzerland, with an impression of great precision and uncontaminated by the recurrent caprices of fashion. Monguzzi grasps us eye with an initial onslaught of beauty, then sense, then the gift of intellectual communication. But the consistency of his working method avoids the pitfalls of personal “style”. Each work stands on its own in intelligence, clarity and grace. He is an amazing artist whose designs emanate poetry.'
