At last Neue Grafik has been reproduced by Lars Müller Publishers, it’s going to be stunning.
Neue Grafik, the “International Review of graphic design and related subjects,” was initiated by designer Josef Müller-Brockmann and published in eighteen issues between 1958 and 1965 by an editorial collective consisting of him, Richard Paul Lohse, Hans Neuburg und Carlo Vivarelli ( LMNV ). The complete volumes are now available in an excellent facsimile reprint from Lars Müller Publishers.
From a historical point of view, Neue Grafik can be seen as a programmatic platform and effective publishing organ of Swiss graphic design, an international authority in its field at the time. Protagonists of the Swiss school and its rigorous Zurich faction lead an essential discourse on the foundations of current communication and constructive design. The influence of this movement cannot be overstated. The Swiss school, also called “International Style,” became exemplary for the conceptual approach to corporate design of increasingly globally operating corporations and an influential precursor in the design of individual projects, such as posters, exhibitions, and publications.
Neue Grafik is an important point of reference in the recent history of graphic design. After the heights of the digital revolution now follows a renewed concern for matter-of-fact concepts and clear form languages. This explains the interest in the almost fundamentalist stance of the four Zurich-based designers, who were responsible for the content of the magazine.

The designer FHK Henrion has no equal in British graphic design history. No UK designer – then or now – can match his sheer depth of accomplishments and range of abilities.
Born in Germany, he trained as a textile designer before becoming a skilled and celebrated poster artist. As a British citizen after WWII, he designed publications, exhibitions, household products, interiors and jewellery, and in the 1960s he became the founding father of modern corporate identity in Europe. He had an exceptional talent for rational and systematic graphic design at a time when design was still a cottage industry. Almost single-handedly he created the model of the modern professional graphic designer.
Henrion was also a notable design educator, and an energetic spokesman for his profession. He published books, wrote articles, lectured extensively and was the force behind numerous design organizations. He was admired and liked by his employees, pupils and associates, and especially by his clients. But he was also a designer with a social conscience, and a designer who rebelled against the over-commercialisation of the design profession in the 1980s. This book is the first comprehensive monograph of the work of FHK Henrion. Lavishly illustrated and designed with precision and flair, it charts his early experiments as a pre-war poster artist and culminates in his work as the creator of some of the most celebrated – and enduring – logos and identities of the 20th century, including Tate+Lyle, KLM, Blue Circle Cement and LEB
