ansB10991

Karlsruhe (1929). 21x30. 64 pp. Ca 45 elevations and 60 plans. Printed red wrappers with bold typographical design by Kurt Schwitters including the exhibition logo. Wrappers are lightly tanned near edges and there is a faint owner's name on front wrapper.

The catalogue to the opening of the Dammerstock Siedlung - a project of residence buildings designed in the modernist International Style. Walter Gropius was in charge of this first phase, although buildings designed by Otto Haesler outnumber those designed by Gropius. The graphic work connected with the project, from letterheads to the catalogue of the exhibition, was entrusted to Kurt Schwitters. The catalogue is uncompromisingly designed in the Bauhaus manner and set entirely in lower case letters on the request of Walter Gropius quoted on the first page. Among the catalogue's advertisements for various companies there is one for Schwitters's own "merz-werbe" advertising and design agency in Hannover, proudly claiming the graphic design for the Dammerstock project and soliciting all kinds of advertising and design commissions.
