Celestino Piatti (1922-2007) was a Swiss graphic designer and painter. Starting from 1937 he studied at the college of arts and crafts in Zurich and afterwards completed an apprenticeship as a graphic designer. Since 1948 he was active as an independent graphic designer. Piatti became particularly famous for his work for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (dtv). Beside the covers he was responsible for typografie, logos, letterheads, announcements and posters, creating a uniform corporate identity. The salient, uniformly white dtv volumes with Piatti’s characteristic illustrations are considered a milestone of elegant and high-quality book-art in the world of paperbacks.
