    The book is available from VGS Verlagsgenossenschaft St. Gallen. They describe the book as follows (translated):

    Jost Hochuli’s new publication deals with the St. Gallen typographer Max Koller (1933–2018). He shows Koller’s work in words and pictures, Koller’s typographic ‘handwriting’ through numerous publications, private prints and advertising. Koller also taught at the Schule für Gestaltung in St. Gallen. In Buchgestaltung in St. Gallen Roland Früh attests to Koller’s “intuition and sense of the right thing, away from dogmatic discussions. Convincing and timeless they [the works] are, despite their functionality, […] never boring – on the contrary. They always, and again and again, appear surprisingly fresh.”

    For the typography, Hochuli used his own Allegra.
