Editorial Reviews

Review

The ABC's is a model of the ways in which design and writing might be harnessed to probe and illuminate a visual subject.... It sets a formidable standard. Eye

While this may be the briefest book on the Bauhaus, we also regard it as one of the best. Ballast Quarterly Review

By A Customer on May 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
This thin volume is a wonderful collection of essays on the typography, design and graphic design of this school that can be considered the heralding in of moderism.
The layout of the book, sparse and clean, was designed by the editors, Joanne Savio and Mike Mills in a manner that adheres to Bauhaus design principles. Well illustrated throughout with examples of the works of Bauhaus artists, the book is a pleasure to look as well as to read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This books is an excellent overview and introduction to the Bauhaus in terms of it's impact and theories, in a concise, generalized form. Recommended for design aficionados, students of design and those who want a look at the theories behind the awesomeness that was the bauhaus.
