Jan Tschichold (1902–1974) is a reputed European typographer. Very few of those who write about typography and book design (and they are few to start with) can get their message across and share their knowledge as explicitly as Tschichold. He had worked in publishing for over forty years. Having started by discarding outdated ideas, he achieved a lot—educating several generations of book designers. Tschichold himself oversaw the publishing of an impressive number of Swiss and British books.

The Form of the Book is a collection of Tschichold’s major essays, sans those where he condemns typographic ignorance of the time. This work explains why so many publications appear wretched in terms of design. It also teaches to truly appreciate rare, exceptionally well designed volumes. This makes The Form of the Book a must-read for any typographer, publisher, designer, or just about any book lover.
