Clinical aspects of mental illnessLondon; Basel: Roche, 1961

“In 1955 he became consultant to the large pharmaceutical firm of F. Hoffman-La Roche in Basel, and designed their entire range of books, labels, advertisements and stationery. This included a series of booklets explaining the uses of new drugs to the medical profession, in German, French and/or English, illustrated with photographs and line drawings often in several colours. They are essentially restarined in style (some would say they are actually ‘under-designed’- better than being ‘over-designed’) but with all of Tschichold’s meticulous attention to detail. Mostly set in Garamond and printed on toned Basingwerk Parchment, they do not carry the names of either designer or printer.”
