authors to produce high-quality publications of great independence with the best possible finish. The press presents its programme as a “school of seeing”. It offers a precise selection from the unmanageable flood of visual events, and brings together authors, designers and artists who stand for quality and tenacity in their own right. Lars Müller was born in Oslo in 1955; he is a Norwegian and has lived in Switzerland since 1963. After an apprenticeship as a graphic artist and some years as a peripatetic student in the USA and Holland he opened his studio in Baden in 1982. Since 1996 he has been a partner in the Integral Concept interdisciplinary design group, which operates in Paris, Milan and Baden.
