  1. As far as I am informed, this proposal by Müller-Brockmann (which is shown in his book “The Graphic Artist and his Design Problems”) was not printed as a poster. The original draft can be found in the collection of the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich (archive number: EB-0246). In 1959 not Müller-Brockmann but Hans Falk was chosen to design the poster for the agricultural fair (it can be seen here).

  2. Thank you for sharing this insight, Philipp. Even JMB got his stuff rejected! I’ve added “proposals” and “unrealized” to the tags.
