Dimension: 81/2 x 113/4 inches, English & German Text, 357 b&w examples and illustrations.

This book is suitable for those who work with automated text and image design. It shows examples of working correctly on a conceptual level.

The three-dimensional grid is treated as well. Put simply: a guidebook from the profession for the profession.

The development of organizational systems in visual communication was the service and the accomplishment of the representatives of simple and functional typography and graphic design. In Europe of the twenties works already arose in the areas of typography, graphic design and photography with objectivized conception and rigid composition. In 1961 a brief presentation of the grid with text and illustrations appeared for the first time in an earlier book by the author. Articles published mainly in trade journals then followed.

This book now attempts to close a gap by giving examples and exact directions to the professional concerning all grid problems that can occur. The author, a world-renown professional, thus offers his colleagues the tools to more easily solve problems.
