Bauhaus Postcards: Invitations to the First Exhibition

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


Presented as a set of three copies each of the original 20 cards inside a giftable hardcover box, these bold, colorful postcards preserve a major early design statement of the Bauhaus

In 1923, Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius commissioned 20 postcards from artists such as Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky to use as promotional flyers for the school's first exhibition. Issued here for the first time in their original format, these rare and priceless postcards perfectly express the spirit of the early Bauhaus.

Featuring artwork digitized using state-of-the-art capture technology, and printed stochastically at 100 percent of the original size, with space on the back for messages, each postcard is a miniature piece of art. From the expressionism of Klee and Kandinsky to the modernism of Herbert Bayer and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Bauhaus Postcards allows readers to send (or keep!) a precious piece of design history.

Artists include: Rudolf Baschant, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, Paul Haberer, Doerte Helm, Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Gerhard Marcks, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Farkas Molnar, Oskar Schlemmer, Kurt Schmidt and Georg Teltscher.
