His influence on typography and graphic design was international (in fact he was often more recognized abroad than domestically).

This book presents a comprehensive overview of Preissigs oeuvre, which ranges from graphics for books and periodicals to ornamental patterns, designs and typography influenced by Alfons Mucha. We learn of his years in Prague, Paris and America (where he taught at Teachers College of Columbia University in New York and at Wentworth Institute in Boston), and his return to Czechoslovakia, where his fresh start was unfortunately thwarted by the onset of World War II.

This publication recounts previously unpublished information about Preissigs life, and contains a wealth of little-seen and previously unseen works.
