Bauhaus at his peak, right after artists such as Schlemmer, Klee, Kandinsky, Van Doesburg and Lissitzky joined the school. It was the first of their highly influential publications, followed by the Bauhausbücher (1925 - 1930). Very well preserved front cover, one of the icons of modern book design.
