Der Chinesische Stempel / Jan Tschichold. Basel: Bucherer, Kurrus & Co., 1972

“Tschichold's idealization of Chinese civilization naturally ensued from a respect for its great historical achievements. In the numerous articles that he wrote for the Swiss printing trade he dealt not only with the history of Western script and typography, but also recognized the fundamental contribution of the Chinese in inventing paper and printing themselves.”
