Picture Journal for the Age László Moholy-Nagy and Joost Schmidt’s Lost Bauhaus Book – a Reconstruction Attempt
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 would involve the typographer Joost Schmidt sharing his proposals for a better, “proper” illustrated magazine. However, the idea came to nothing. This book now asks the question of how the planned “Bauhaus Book” might have argued its case.
