‘Typobiography’ is a visual monograph, which develops the questions that have guided Jost Hochuli’s practice over his six-decade career in several thematic sections, in particular his conception of design as an essential factor in the legibility of a text and the transmission of knowledge. Each part is abundantly illustrated with works specifically digitised and displayed in a layout designed by Hochuli himself, to create a reference for the designer’s work. Bringing together several texts by Jost Hochuli himself, contributions by well- known figures (including a preface by John Morgan and an interview with Robin Kinross) and a corpus of previously unpublished archival images, this monograph aims to raise interest in book design, and especially the inspirations and personalities that marked out the designer’s career.
