Gotthard de Beauclair: Art and Literature Through Typography and Design

Born in 1907, Gotthard de Beauclair spent most of his life learning about calligraphy, printing, typography, and book design. With his expertise and skillful technique, he produced some of the finest examples of limited editions and commercially-produced books. Even now, his work stands as a model for superior bookmaking. His trade books are among our very favorites. He did very good work. There are few English-language books or articles about de Beauclair. This short book/exhibition catalogue is a tremendous resource and a great introduction to a book designer more Americans should know about.
