This book (Ship to Europe, not translated into English), an almost abstract story of the transatlantic crossing of the ship Andrea Doria, was published in Switzerland in 1957. It struck my eye when I saw it that year in a bookshop. Designed by Karl Gerstner, the book has a striking typographic structure, and is one of the best early examples of the inspiring Swiss direction in graphic design. It was of great importance for my own development as a graphic designer.
