Double centenary book published in 1958, profiling the story of Geigy - a Swiss chemical company.
'In the 1950-60s Geigy's innovative communications and graphic design department was one of the key institutions to develop and popularise what is now known as "Swiss style graphic design". The book design is Swiss style epitomised: multi-language, multi-column, grid-based layout with sans-serif type set unjustified. The impressive colour photos are credited to René Groebli, the booklet was designed by Therese Moll, a highly talented Swiss graphic designer who had worked for Studio Boggeri in Milan before teaming up with Karl Gerstner in Basel.'
