Bunch and Bucheinband means books and book covers. Jost Hochuli designed the book in 1995. This book is one of my favorite books that Hochuli designed. He kindly sent the book to us. This book gives an example how does the asymmetric and symmetric typography work. Look below the structure of the grid from this book. The grid images are taken from the book Jost Hochuli:Printed matter, mainly books published by Niggli. The yellow dust cover gives a good contrast with the black texts. The bold title and pagination give a strong balance to the page. The size of the book is quite large but very light. It is very comfortable to hold the book. It's a beautiful book.
