The first volume of the series “Visual Archives,” edited by ECAL, is dedicated to the teaching career of Swiss graphic designer Hermann Eidenbenz (1902–1993).

Hermann Eidenbenz was one of the first persons in Switzerland to describe himself as a graphic designer. From the first half of the 20th century into the 1950s, he was involved in graphic design education in Zurich, Magdeburg, Basel and Brunswick, first as a student and later as a teacher.

The didactic material from Eidenbenz’s time as a teacher of graphic design published here throws light on this discipline at a time before graphic design in Switzerland had achieved international recognition.
