Description

The Bauhaus, the legendary school in Dessau, Germany, transformed  architecture and design around the world. This book broke new ground when first published in 1991 by introducing psychoanalysis, geometry, early childhood education, and popular culture into the standard  political history of the Bauhaus. 

The ABC's of Triangle, Square, Circle  also introduced two young designers, Ellen Lupton and J. Abbott Miller,  whose multidisciplinary approach changed the field of design writing and research. With a new preface by Lupton and Miller, this collection of  visually and intellectually stimulating essays is a must-read for  educators and students.  

"[2019] was the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Bauhaus  school of design in Weimar, Germany. Much more than an architectural  style, the school promoted an educational theory and a strict design language. This is a reissue of a 1991 book, part design history, part  playful typographic investigation into the Bauhaus process. This book  will appeal to anyone particularly interested in the school's approach  to graphic design, and its enduring influence."
