    1. This poster is reproduced as part of an ad by Handsetzerei Ernst Gloor, a typesetting company in Zurich, in Graphis No. 143 (1970).

      The typographic composition by Hans-Rudolf Lutz is meant as a stimulus. He once said: “It is not the purpose of typography to produce pictures, but I regard it as one of its potentialities.” The original poster, about 27×31 inches in size, is available free of charge to those who would like to have it.
