Softcover. 

Contains typographic works by Herbert Bayer, Max Burchartz, El Lissitzky, Moholy-Nagy, Johannes Molzahn, Kurt Schwitters, Mart Stam and Jan Tschichold (credited as Ivan Tschichold). Furthermore with the contributions: „Neues Bauen“ by Adolf Behne and „Dadaismus“ by Richard Huelsenbeck.

Two years after the 1923 Bauhaus exhibition, Tschichold was invited to serve as guest editor for the October 1925 issue of the printing trade journal Typographische Mitteilungen, for which he designed a twenty-four-page Sonderheft (special issue) insert entitled 'elementare typographie.' Originally intended as a Bauhaus special edition, this issue of typographische mitteilungen (the name of the journal being set in lowercase letters on this occasion) was entirely devoted to 'Die neue Typographie'. . . . Printed in red and black, the Sonderheft helped to clarify, demonstrate, and display the principles of the New Typography for professional printers, typesetters, and typographers. In addition to Tschichold's own typography, it presented work by the avant-garde designers Max Burchartz, Johannes Molzahn, Schwitters, Moholy-Nagy, Lissitzky, Bayer, and the Swiss poster designer Otto Baumberger. These images were accompanied by Tschichold's own articulate comments and observations. (modernism101.com)
