Anne Hoffmann, born in Copenhagen, runs her own graphic design studio in Zurich and works mainly in the fields of art and culture, collaborating with international artists and museums. Over three decades she has designed a wide range of materials, including posters, flyers, cards, and CD booklets. She is best known, however, for her striking designs for books. She has had her own studio since 1986, now in Zurich, where she has worked closely with Swiss and international artists such as Silvia Bächli, Richard Hamilton, and Karim Noureldin.

​In Mostly Books, designed by Anne Hoffmann Graphic Design, Hoffmann reviews thirty years of work. The selection comprises some 120 objects, featured in an annotated book diary. In addition to that panorama, the book explores the topic of graphic design from a variety of perspectives through statements by artists Chris B¸nter, Miriam Cahn, and Claudio Moser; architect Kana Ueda Thoma; author and curator Peter Suter; jewelry designer Torben Hardenberg; museum director and curator Beat Wismer; musician Jörg Halter; and scholar Etienne Lullin, who all offer reflections on the importance of the book as an object and its design.
