REVIEW Grid Systems in Graphic Design

FREE READ ´ Grid Systems in Graphic Design ñ VERY RARE illustrated hardcover book sorry no dust jacket Grid Systems in Graphic Design Raster Systeme für die Visuelle Gestaltung By Josef Müller Brockmann English version by D Stephenson English and German text This is the 5th Edition published by Verlag Niggli AG 2007 Full title Grid SystManual for Graphic Designers Typographers and Three Dimensional Designers Raster Systeme für die Visuelle Gestaltung Ein Handbuch für Grafiker Typografen und Ausstellungsgestalter A comprehensive handbook on modern typography and using the Grid System illustrated with drawings diagrams black white photographs numerous examples of grap. This is THE classic designers book on grid systems I have a handful of grid related books and this one stands out and the most thorough and theoretical Muller Brockmann's explanations for why to make the decisions thoughtful structure that he recommends is rare wisdom that I didn't get in my design education The book is dated in a wonderful way – very Midcentury Swiss He starts off simple and then gets and complicated as the book progresses I feel like his design isn't directly applicable to a lot of contemporary work however I still find it useful both theoretically and also just to thumb through when I'm sketching up layouts – he really was a very creative inventive designer in terms of composition in spite of consistently adhering to a strict grid system I'm only giving it a 4 due to the paper uality It's super heavy nice paper however it started to yellow and age after just a few years I don't actually want my version to look THAT vintage for around 100 it should hold up much better than that

Grid Systems in Graphic DesignVERY RARE illustrated hardcover book sorry no dust jacket Grid Systems in Graphic Design Raster Systeme für die Visuelle Gestaltung By Josef Müller Brockmann English version by D Stephenson English and German text This is the 5th Edition published by Verlag Niggli AG 2007 Full title Grid Systems in Graphic Design A Visual Communication. Oddly this isn't the page turner I expected Thus far it's functioning as an unintentionally hilarious Objet d′art I tried to like this I know it's important every designer should read it etc That said I found it outdated and less than captivating A landmark publication when it came out I hoped it would help out my sense of composition and add clarity to everything I create No such luck for me I may try out The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst and leave Müller Brockmann's book out on the coffee table along with A Million Random Digits with 100000 Normal Deviates and The World Market for Porcelain or China Household or Toilet Articles to wow my guestsSome links for further exploration
