About This Item

Berlin: Rowohlt, 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo. 85, [3] pp. With 24 black and white photographic plates of skiing. Lower cover slightly soiled, but an attractive copy, suitable for exhibition. Original publisher's cloth with PHOTOMONTAGE OF A SKIER BY HERBERT BEYER.

First Edition, a very good copy in the original exuberant binding designed by Herbert Bayer (1900-1985), of the major figures of the Bauhaus movement; Bayer also designed the book, and remains and an important typographical contribution by him.

Of all the artists to pass through the Bauhaus, none lived the ideal of total integration of the arts into life like Bayer. He was a graphic designer, typographer, photographer, painter, environmental designer, sculptor and exhibition designer. Bayer entered the Bauhaus in 1921 and was greatly influenced by Kandinsky, Moholy-Nagy and El Lissitzky. He left the Bauhaus in 1923, but returned in 1925 to become a master in the school. During his tenure he produced many designs that became quintessential examples of the Bauhaus "style." Bayer was instrumental in moving the Bauhaus to purely Sans Serif usage in all its work. Curiously, the present volume was printed entirely in Fraktur type -- perhaps an allusion to the socio-political developments in Germany at this time.
