Malerei Fotografie Film
München: Albert Langen Verlag, 1927. A little frayed at the spine tips, else very good in yellow boards lacking the rare dust wrapper. The first notable copy of this landmark publication I have seen or handled.. Second edition, following the scarce 1925 edition. Published as Bauhaus Bücher 8, edited by Moholy-Nagy and Walter Gropius. A fine contemporary presentation copy, SIGNED by Moholy-Nagy and INSCRIBED in 1928 to lumber baron Adolf Sommerfeld, who was responsible for financing several Bauhaus projects involving both Walter Gropius and Moholy: "damit man nicht streitet [translation: so that one does not argue] / für Herr Sommerfeld / Moholy = Nagy / 3 VII 28". Illustrated with photographs and collages by Moholy-Nagy, Renger-Patzsch, Man Ray, etc., and setting out the thesis of the New Vision photographers, artists, and graphic designers. The juxtaposition of photography and typography was of particular importance to Moholy-Nagy, and the interplay of these elements is one reason for the enduring influence this book has on all the media it portrays. (Roth 44-45; Parr / Badger, v1, 91-92; Open Book 60-61; Auer 121).
