The Good Life: Perceptions of the Ordinary, by Jasper Morrison, 2014 (Lars Müller Publishers). 6.75 x 9 inches, hardcover, 80 pages, 37 illustrations

The Good Life: Perceptions of the Ordinary is a collection of photo essays by renowned industrial designer Jasper Morrison that examines and imagines the life behind a series of seemingly ordinary situations. Just what is it that catches his eye, and why? What’s the significance of a broken flowerpot, a pair of identical tables side by side, a garden hose wrapped around an old car wheel?

100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design edited by Christian Brändle, Karin Gimmi, Barbara Junod, Christina Reble, Bettina Richter, and Museum of Design Zürich, 2014 (Lars Müller Publishers). 8 x 12 inches, hardcover, 384 pages, 600 illustrations

100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design takes a fresh look at Swiss typography and photo-graphics, posters, corporate image design, book design, journalism, and typefaces over the past hundred years. With illuminating essays by prominent experts in the field and captivating illustrations, this book, designed by the Zurich studio NORM, presents the diversity of contemporary visual design while also tracing the fine lines of tradition that connect the work of different periods. Graphic design from Switzerland reflects both international trends and local concerns. High conceptual and formal quality, irony and wit are its constant companions.
