Franz Fässler

Love this poster and catalogue by Franz Fassler (1920-2003) for the G59 - 1st Swiss Horticulture Exhibition which took place from April 25 to October 11, 1959 in Zurich. The goal of the G59 was to promote Swiss horticulture and give young people an understanding of horticulture and landscape architecture. Whilst the minimalist 'Poets Corner' by landscape artist Ernst Cramer became the most controversial piece of horticulture with its abstract geometric principals, the G59 also provided an opportunity for brochures, posters and labels to be designed in the typical modern Swiss style. 

Despite finding some some cracking work by Franz, I found very little information on him so if anyone knows any more about this great Swiss designer please let me know.
