I'd recommend a book I bought recently. Swiss alps by kev reynolds and published by cicerone. Lots of ideas and useful info.
Swisstopo maps easy to get in UK, either online from swisstopo (their ordnance survey equivalent), or from shops such as stanfords in London.
However, you can get free access to 1:25000, 1:50000 Swisstopo maps online at http://map.schweizmobil.ch/?lang=en. Ideal for trip planning!
