Modernist aesthetics in architecture, art, and product design are familiar to many. In soaring glass structures or minimalist canvases, we recognize a time of vast technological advance which affirmed the power of human beings to reshape their environment and to break, radically, from the conventions or constraints of the past. Less well-known, but no less fascinating, is the distillation of modernism in graphic design.
This unprecedented TASCHEN publication, authored by Jens Müller, brings together approximately 6,000 trademarks, focused on the period 1940–1980, to examine how modernist attitudes and imperatives gave birth to corporate identity. Ranging from media outfits to retail giants, airlines to art galleries, the sweeping survey is organized into three design-orientated chapters: Geometric, Effect, and Typographic. Each chapter is then sub-divided into form and style led sections such as alphabet, overlay, dots and squares.
Alongside the comprehensive catalog, the book features an introduction from Jens Müller on the history of logos, and an essay by R. Roger Remington on modernism and graphic design. Eight designer profiles and eight instructive case studies are also included, with a detailed look at the life and work of such luminaries as Paul Rand, Yusaku Kamekura, and Anton Stankowski, and at such significant projects as Fiat, The Daiei Inc., and the Mexico Olympic Games of 1968. An unrivaled resource for graphic designers, advertisers, and branding specialists, Logo Modernism is equally fascinating to anyone interested in social, cultural, and corporate history, and in the sheer persuasive power of image and form.
Jens Müller was born in Koblenz, Germany, in 1982 and studied graphic design. Recipient of numerous national and international design awards, Müller is Creative Director of vista design studio in Düsseldorf, editor of the A5 book series on graphic design history, and author of Logo Modernism. He is a visiting lecturer at the Peter Behrens School of Arts in Düsseldorf and at the design department of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

In this revealing publication, Mario Testino presents a 50-part series exploring the intersection of art, anatomy, fashion, and eroticism. Coinciding with an exhibition at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, these works center on the naked body, blurring the line between public and private personas as well as laying Testino’s archive bare with a number of previously unseen photographs.
Mario Testino selects his finest male portraiture from the past 30 years. As costume, gender play, photojournalism, and fashion collide, this Eden of male allure is testimony both to Testino’s unfailing eye for immediacy and elegance, and to the evolution of male self-expression over the past three decades.
Kate + Mario = fashion dynamite. This book is the legendary photographer’s personal homage to his greatest muse: a young girl that captured his heart and eye with her beauty, humour and spirit, and whose image in his photographs has captured imaginations the world over. The show-stopping collection includes fashion shoots, candid snaps, and insights from both icons.

Performance-Künstlerin, selbstbekennende transsexuelle Anarchistin, Macho-Frau, seelisch Heimatlose, Fashion Model für Marianne Alvoni, Lieblings-Zielscheibe der Schweizer Boulevardpresse – Coco, Dana whatshername, Patricia, Éve-Claudine Lorétan war so vieles in ihrem zu kurzen Leben.
Olivier Fatton begegnete Coco an einem Sonntag im November 1989. Dieser ‚lichte und doch so schwermütige Engel“ faszinierte den Fotografen vom ersten Moment an. Bei einem Kaffee in einem Berner Schwulenlokal schliessen sie einen fotografischen Vertrag: Coco posiert für ihn und dafür dokumentiert Fatton ihre Geschlechtsanpassung. Aus dem Pakt wurde eine Liebesbeziehung, in deren Verlauf Fatton zahlreiche Aufnahmen von Coco machte. Intime Porträts, inszenierte Modefotografie, zuhause, unterwegs, in Clubs und in den Bergen zeigen die zahlreichen Facetten der schillernden Coco. Und immer wieder diese grossen, melancholischen Augen. Ihre Augen seien ihr zweiter Mund geworden, sagte sie einmal. Und weil Cocos tausendseitige Autobiographie von Dieben gestohlen wurde, erzählen uns diese Augen vom Leben einer Kameliendame des 20. Jahrhunderts.
Dunia Miralles sieht Coco genau als so eine literarische Figur der Demi-Monde. In ihrem biographisch informierten Kurzroman, der die Fotografien begleitet, gibt sie Cocos Leben neue Gestalt.
