Exhibition Info:

Swiss Impressions: Romano Hänni and the Art of Metal Type

The stunning technique and design mastery of Basel designer/printer Romano
Hänni is on view for the first time in this important exhibition of
hand-printed books. A former student at the Basel School of Design with such
teachers as Wolfgang Weingart, Hänni tends to avoid the fashionable excesses
of ³deep impression² letterpress effects, returning instead to the core
values of traditional printing technique and modernist European design.
Hänni and partner Martin Sommer have also forged a reputation as designers
of magazines and newspapers, most prominently the Basler Zeitung
(1983­2003). This exhibition will also feature examples of their
computer-aided publication design. The show runs from
May 13 to August 5. Meet Hänni at the closing reception, Friday August 5,
starting at 7 p.m.
