"Upon receipt of the book, I discovered a richness and vibrancy that was somewhat unexpected, the book encapsulating a life's work in large-scale full-colour images from start to finish, with strong and engaging texts... Maybe it is simply because much of the work in this book is previously unpublished that it feels more expressive and exciting... This monograph is a very thorough and extremely well-researched portfolio... For many of you who feel that you are aware of much of his design output, there may be a surprise in store when studying this volume... For those who do not know of Max Huber, now is the time to acquaint yourselves with one of the more significant designers of the twentieth century."—Grafik
"I believe in judging a book by its cover. Especially when the book in question is about one of the great graphic designers of our age. Phaidon can only take credit for selecting this particular image, but what an image... It gives an instant insight into the work of a brilliant man. His trademark device of overlaying a vibrant array of colours to dramatic effect completely dominates this cover in such a way that you just have to see more. So inside we go... If you haven't heard of Huber you will almost certainly recognise some of the more famous work included here, and as the pages turn you will wish you had discovered him before. The best compliment I can pay this book is that it truly lives up to its cover, and, I can guarantee, it will have you hooked."—Blueprint
"Handsome and well illustrated."—Eye
