Catalogue for an exhibition on the history of glass at the Kunstgewerbemuseum, Zurich in 1956. 'The Kunstgewerbeschule (School for Applied Arts) in Zürich was a place were young graphic designers learned the "Swiss Style" in the 1950s. The exhibition catalogues and posters of the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum for Applied Arts) which is under the same roof are often excellent examples of this style. Here a catalogue of an exhibition on the history of glass. The catalogue design by Carl Bernhard Graf (1926-1968) is a classic example of 1950s' Swiss modernism: asymmetric page layout and page numbers, sans-serif typeface, lowercase titles reveal the influence of 1920s' new typography.'
