From Wikipedia > Celestino Piatti (1922-2007) was a Swiss graphic artist, painter and book designer. He is popular for his illustration work for children's books, though he also achieved international success as a designer for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (DTV), whose books, from 1961 until the mid-1990s, were designed almost exclusively by Piatti, a total of over 6,300 titles. In addition to the cover design, he was responsible for typography, Signet, letterheads, advertisements and posters, providing a uniform identity to the DTV catalog.
