BORN IN LEIPZIG, Germany in the early twentieth century, a period that brought rapid ideological change both to individual lives and to society as a whole,]an Tschichold (1902—74) pursued an efficient typography suited to the dynamic communication of the machine age, that is, the theory and practice of New Typography. Eventually, however, he rejected this approach and came to espouse the value of traditional typography.

Tschichold moved to England after the war and took on the enormous task of improving the typography and design of Penguin Books. The changes made under his direction raised the overall level of book design in England and showed the entire world the importance of typography in books.

This exhibition brings together roughly 350 posters, books, type specimens, newspapers and magazines, sketches, and writings from the collections of Martijn F. Le Coultre of the Netherlands, Georg Kühle of Germany, Yoshihisa Shirai, George Sugishita, Yuuki Nagano, and Sho Watanabe. This exhibition is the first in Japan to show the full breadth of the work of this giant figure in twentieth-century typography.

We are deeply grateful for the unsrinting efforts of Martijn F. Le Coultre, Who served as (Lo-adviser; Yoshihisa Shirai, who served as adviser and was responsible for design; Taro Yamamoto and Christopher Burke, who wrote the forewords for the catalog; and the many others whose contributions made this exhibition possible.

2013年11月にギンザグラフィックギャラリーで開催された、ヤン・チヒョルト展の図録です。


ドイツ・ライプツィヒに生まれたヤン・チヒョルト(1902-1974)は20世紀初頭、社会全体はもちろん個々の生活のイデオロギーが激変する中で機械化時代のダイナミックな情報伝達にふさわしい効率的なタイポグラフィを目指しました。いわゆる「ニュー・タイポグラフィ」の理論と実践です。しかし、やがてその主張を自ら否定し、伝統的なタイポグラフィの価値を訴えるようになります。
本展はポスター、書籍、書体見本帳、新聞、雑誌、スケッチ、著書などの作品に焦点を当て、20世紀タイポグラフィ史上の最重要人物の業績の全貌を知ることが出来る日本で初めてのヤン・チヒョルト展です。
