Bold Chairs contain Beatrice Warde's Crystal Goblet, Max Bill's essay, and Jan Tschicold's essay—-all relating to typography. The essays are not presented one after another; rather, the book presents these essays as if these individuals are having a conversation. One designer is given some time to talk, then another designer bumps in if what they say is related. The folding and binding of the book represent the expansion and inclusion of ideas as the pages literally open up to reveal more information. Although the essays are broken up, the pieces are ordered as they were written.
