Over 500 books on the architecture of the 20th century from the Marzona Collection are represented in this catalogue book by the Italian curator Elisabetta Bresciani. The books are bibliographically compiled, documented in photos and commented on as to architectur and typographic history. The strong parallels between architecture and typography focused on here highlight the book as an authentic and independent medium of expression and design for the architects of modernism.

Preface: Elisabetta Bresciani; with texts by Marco De Michelis and Catherine de Smet and an interview of the editor with Egidio Marzona.
