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 his 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 served as the art director of this volume; in accordance with his 60-year commitment to the use of the lowercase alphabet, all 32 of his essays included here are set in minuscules.
