New Typographies. Bauhaus & Beyond: 100 Years of Functional Graphic Design
The New Typography produced a number of important graphic designers in Germany, including Willi Baumeister and Kurt Schwitters. In adverts, posters, book and magazine covers, and letterheads, they aimed to optimise readability and standardise typefaces. Layouts, preferably using sansserif typefaces offering the greatest possible clarity and combined with new objective photography, became popular with the advertising industry and still define our visual socialisation to this day.
Presented in a design true to Moholy-Nagy’s original, “International Architecture” offers readers the opportunity to explore the Bauhaus’ aesthetic and its place in the world as Gropius himself was trying to define them.
Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts
Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts considers the impact of technology by exploring ways it was addressed in the practice of the Hungarian polymath artist László Moholy-Nagy, a prominent professor at the Bauhaus and a key figure in the history of Modernism.
Picture Journal for the Age
In the 1920s, the announcements of the legendary series of “Bauhaus Books” always spoke of a “picture journal for the age”. László Moholy-Nagy toyed with the idea of a critical survey of contemporary magazine productions. This book now asks the question of how the planned “Bauhaus Book” might have argued its case.
