The Bauhaus was the defining birthplace of modernism, and one that continues to influence artistic and aesthetic direction today.

This volume is comprehensive, and is in itselt, as an object that reflects Bauhaus sensibility - a reflection of the movement.

I have been seeking a copy off an on for over 30 years but they are hard to come by - I have only seen one or two (hardcover) ones for sale in that time. The copy I have purchased is second hand but in fine condition - including the beautifully articulated slipcase.

One of the great beneifts of the internet, and in particular, when it comes to books, is Amazon's (and a few other websites) functionality in bringing together buyers and sellers for out of print, and relatively rare books, still at affordable prices.

I purchased my copy from the US and had it delivered to Australia, for a third of the cover price the book was, 30 years ago.

Even ignoring inflacon, this is surely a bargain.

Please note that my comments refer to the hardcover version only, The later produced softcover, is just a book, in comparison.

A timeless classic it enjoys pride of place in my personal library.

A great deal of information, focused on individuals and their contributions to the Bauhaus. ALL pages are in black and white, which is always a great disappointment when reading about art, design or architecture. Considering this production shortcoming, the book is overpriced. Its written content, very useful and thorough.
