The world-famous Swiss graphic designer and illustrator Celestino Piatti (1922–2007) designed more than 6,000 book covers and over 500 posters, mainly for the dtv Publishers Group. Between 1963 and 1976, however, he also created seven books for children, now published altogether for the first time in this volume. These books are all in A4 in the original – three in upright and four in horizontal format. The challenge in the design was to combine the different layouts in one book size without losing the original character. This was achieved in the form of a subtle re-interpretation of these publications in close coordination with the publisher and the association "Celestino Piatti – the visual heritage".
