About: A very scarce near complete run of Neue grafik (Issues 2 to 17/18, ex-libris bound in two volumes).
Neue Grafik was founded by Josef Müller-Brockmann, Hans Neuburg, Richard Paul Lohse, and Carlo Vivarelli in Zurich on February 15, 1958. The publication's formation was catalysed by the "Konstruktive Grafik" exhibition at the Zurich Kunstgewerbemuseum, in which the designers had participated. Central to the journal was the conception of the designer as an individual endowed with a great deal of social responsibility. With the authority to effectively communicate ideas, the founders held, came responsibility to uphold values and justice. The journal was also known for advocating the use of photography as a central element in graphic design.
