This is the book to read for insights into the mechanics of American elections! Proceeding his praised book American Readers at Home, named one of the Most Beautiful Swiss Books and one of the Most Beautiful German Books as well as winner of the German Design Award 2019 Gold, Swiss designer Ludovic Balland now presents a second edition with compelling material amassed on his road trip across the United States during the 2016 Presidential campaign. Four years have passed and none of these statements has lost in explanatory power or urgency!
The “25 Most Beautiful German Books of 2020” have been chosen and we are thrilled that Scheidegger & Spiess is represented with Jürg Düblin’s historical study In Stalins Reich. Die Moskauer Jahre des Architekten und Städteplaners Hans Schmidt 1930–1937, designed by Beat Keusch and Anna Klokow / BKVK, Basel. The Jury’s verdict: “Does this book feel surprisingly recent because of the timeless validity of classical modernism? Or is it an accomplishment of skillful design – exceeding its pure function, like a visual language – to communicate meaning through form?”
The bookstore Never Stop Reading is located in Zurich's old town, only a few steps from the Kunsthaus, the University, and ETH. The store features a broad range of international publications on architecture, photography, art, and design, as well as a section of general-interest English books. The new spaces can be used for small exhibitions and we'll be hosting a diverse program of book launches, readings, panel discussions . . . We're looking forward to seeing you there!
