Kepes, Gyorgy (ed.), Vision + Value Series, New York, George Braziller, see dates/editions below, 4to (11" x 9"), HB in dj, tan cloth bds w/ black titles, each in well designed illustrative jackets, NF / VG+. Condition consistent to all volumes; occasional creasing & age-toning, minor chipping, one closed tear.

Full 6-volume set in such nice condition, complete with dust jackets, is fairly uncommon.

From The Publisher: "Each volume of the series is devoted to a broad basic theme which, because of its related meaning to different professional concepts, provides fruitful ground for confronting, combining and comparing knowledge from diverse disciplines. Each contains an introduction by Gyorgy Kepes, and approx. 13 essays written expressly for the volume by eminent members of the scientific, scholarly or artistic professions. Three years of intense editorial work served to give each volume an integrated character, complemented by the great richness of images offered in numerous illustrations." Many notable contributors, including R. Buckminster Fuller, Paul Rand, Hans Richter, Rudolph Arnheim, Marshall McLuhan, Ad Reinhardt, John Cage, Marcel Breuer, Max Bill, Pier Luigi Nervi, Katherine Kuh, Johannes Itten et al.
