Herbert Bayer: The Complete Worksby Arthur A. Cohen
For over half a century Herbert Bayer (1900-1985), one of the original masters of the Bauhaus, did pioneering work in all of the fine and applied arts. This is the first book to present a comprehensive survey of Bayer's enormous oeuvre; Arthur A. Cohen traces the development of Bayer's visual ideas across six decades and as many genres, proving that Bayer—more than any of his Bauhaus colleagues—produced an art that simultaneously expressed the needs of an industrial age and the impulse of the avant-garde.
Bayer himself served as the art director of the hardcover edition of this elegantly produced volume. It is lavishly illustrated with 43 color and 350 black-and-white plates, many of which come from Bayer's own archive and have never before appeared in print. In accordance with Herbert Bayer's sixty-year commitment to the use of the lowercase alphabet, all 32 of his essays included here are set in miniscules.
