Title
Tipografia, 5/6

Designer
Guido Modiano

Firm
G. Modiano & Co.

Year
1932

Client
Fonderia Reggiani

Medium
Periodical

Notes
Cover of Tipografia, a magazine started by Modiano himself in 1931. The periodical was dedicated to printing and promoted a Constructivist approach to typography also in its own design, thus revealing the fundamental role of Modiano as a pioneer of modern graphic design. According to typographic standards of 1930s, the layout geometry is very rigorous and elegant but also symmetrically contrived. Previously unseen on the internet.
