Bauhaus Typography at 100


Product Description
Product Details


Looking at the Bauhaus’s letterforms across its short yet prolific fourteen year trajectory—and tracking how its lessons traveled abroad with the emigration of its professors and students—ultimately offers an intimate portrait of the school.

Featuring a splendid introduction by Ellen Lupton, [Bauhaus Typography at 100] is arguably the most complete Bauhaus resource I’ve seen, and I have been collecting related volumes for decades.

While the Bauhaus is often remembered for large-scale modernist architecture, Bauhaus Typography at 100 tells the movement’s history through its smallest increment: the letters and type created by its myriad members across its fourteen-year span. This book is a testament to Bauhaus typogra-phy’s outsized role in disseminating the school’s shifting ideals of modernity in capsule form. Chronicling Bauhaus letter forms from the school’s founding manifesto through its many influen-tial publications and the later work of the school’s members, this beautiful book reveals a startling diversity that will delight and inspire designers and all readers of today.
