Richard Paul Lohse was a design pioneer in various fields for over fifty years. This catalogue, a project of the Richard Paul Lohse Foundation, is the first publication to show the complete works of the Swiss-born artist and graphic designer. Numerous works spanning the time from the 1930s to the 1960s - many of them not available since their initial publication - are brought together here for the first time. Several essays shed light on the multi-faceted relationship between aesthetics and politics in the period just after World War II, exploring Lohse's influence on the development of modern non-fiction books, on advertisements and infotainment, and on Swiss typography, which has enjoyed an exemplary status worldwide since the 1950s. With its sumptuous illustrations and perceptive texts, Richard Paul Lohse: Graphic Design from 1928-1988 is an essential contribution to the history of constructional commercial graphics.
