(Preface) 'Max Huber (1919-92) was one of the most significant graphic designers of the twentieth century. In this comprehensive monograph, the first to be published on this major figure, the authors trace and illustrate Huber's entire career, from his early years in Switzerland to his more mature work in Italy.
Huber's style assimilated the teachings of the early modern masters, such as Max Bill and László Moholy-Nagy, combining their principles with the enormous variety of cultural influences present in vibrant post-war Milan. This fully illustrated survey of his work demonstrates that Huber was among the first to apply the aesthetics of the avant garde to a corporate and commercial environment, creating formal solutions that he would go on to use throughout his life. Among the 450 illustrations in this book (the majority of which have never been published before) are examples of his celebrated posters for the Monza races, his jazz record covers and his books for major Italian publishers, which remain appreciated today as superb examples of their genres.'
