Posters by Armin Hoffman and Wolfgang Weingart comprise the majority of this collection. Hoffman, the author of the seminal textbook Graphic Design Manual (1965), was a dedicated educator at the prestigious design school Allgemeine Gewerbeschule Basel School of Art and Crafts, where he was an instructor of Leah Hoffmitz. Weingart is credited as “the father of New Wave or Swiss Punk typography.”
