Bauhaus Advertisement 'bauhaus tapeten' no. 5
Moses Bahelfer, 1930
[Translate to English:] Text
For the production of the master/printing plate, the stamped Antiqua font ‘bauhaus tapeten’ and the large dots were applied on top of the typewritten text. The Bauhaus advertisement no. 5 appeared in, among other things: 'ReD', special issue bauhaus dessau no. 3/1930; 'Die Form', no. 9/1.5.1930; 'Das Neue Frankfurt', no. 6/7/1930; 'Rhein-Mainische Volkszeitung'. There are further versions, one-and two-column, in which the lettering "bauhaus tapeten" is replaced by lettering inscribed with a round-nib fountain pen.
The printing plates for the Bauhaus advertisements were numbered according to advertising date; Moses Bahelfer’s advertisement was No. 5.
