This is real, this is pure, this is new typography. My mind is made up: this is the pioneer to teach me... the road to Basel, typographic reflections by students of the typographer and teacher Emil Ruder. Illustrated on 96 pages with typographic works of the Basel School.

In the 50s and 60s Basel became the meeting place for young typographers and designers from various countries, mainly due to Ruder's work and personality. The road to Basel, typographic reflections, attempts to document this creative period of modern typography.

Internationally active designers and teachers write about their time at the Allgemeine Gewerbeschule Basel (Basel School of Design) with such distinguished personalities as Emil Ruder, Robert Buchler Kurt Hauert and Armin Hoffmann.
