Ein Stammbaum der Schrift., (A Tree of Fonts).
Frankfurt, 1962. - Broadside/Poster. 34 x 27. Matted, glazed, in a handsome cherry frame. The visible portion measures 33 x 24 inches. A stylized black tree on a soft green background, displaying the development of Bauer type faces, printed in various colors. With about 60 faces, those on the trunk are the fore-runners (Roman capitals, Uncials, etc.). Branches (miniscules, gothics, cursives, antiquas, bastardas) culminate in Bauer types. At the top of the tree--Futura. Tiny circular puncture in upper corner, all else fine. A stunning broadside produced for friends of the foundry, to celebrate Bauer's 125th anniversary.
