Bauhaus Books − Vol. 1. Internationale Architektur, author: Walter Gropius / cover design: Farkas Molnár / typograph: László Moholy-Nagy, 1925.

From 1925 to 1930, Gropius and Moholy-Nagy were responsible for the publication of 14 Bauhaus books. Supported in the practical aspects of publishing by Lucia Moholy, the aim of the project was to depict the challenges and accomplishments of the Bauhaus. In addition, monographic texts by both German and international authors were to awaken an understanding for the diverse currents of the avant-garde movement.
