Whether you're an art aficionado, an architecture nerd, or fan of design, Taschen's new book on Bauhaus is a solid addition to any bookshelf:
"The Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin holds the most important collection on the Bauhaus today. Documents, workshop products from all areas of design, studies, sketches in the classroom, and architectural plans and models are all part of its comprehensive inventory. The Bauhaus-Archiv is dedicated to the study and presentation of the history of the Bauhaus, including the New Bauhaus in Chicago and the Hochschule für Gestaltung (Institute of Design) in Ulm.
This book, drawn from the Bauhaus-Archiv’s extensive collection, traces this monumental movement in art and architecture via the work of its most important proponents, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee."
