Jost Hochuli: Printed Matter, Mainly Books


K. Small regulars will know the only reason we opened this place is to sell Jost Hochuli’s Detail in Typography. Don’t get us started. We love that book. This 2001 monograph is also a beloved favorite. It features over 600 illustrations of Hochuli’s work. The book is thus the ultimate synthesis of Hochuli’s works. It is structured in three thematic blocks “Commercial Graphic Design,” “Typefaces Cut in Wood and Linoleum,” and “Books” which are accompanied by theoretical texts while generously documented by numerous examples from Hochuli’s work.

When we get stuck or don’t know what to do, this is often a book to which we turn. We can’t recommend it enough.
