5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview, great pictures 28 May 2014
By Ellen
Verified Purchase
I am studying Fine Art and briefly studied the Bauhaus for an Art History module. I was became really interested in its designs and aesthetic as well as its history, and I think this book is perfect for providing a concise overview of the different departments and progression of the school, as well as lots of great photographs! A really beautiful book and great for anyone who wants to know more about the school.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book for MASS-PRODUCED INDUSTRIAL Coffee Tables 27 May 2009
By Unlucky Frank - Published on
Verified Purchase
When I first opened this, I couldn't believe I only paid 10 doll-hairs for this elegantly designed Hardbound Coffee Table book on The History of Bauhaus. I never expected the book to be as big, full of photos, or as gorgeous as it really is. Large print text by art historian Magdalena Droste. Beautiful Black & White and Color reproductions (some full page) of the art, design, textiles, interiors, metal work, furniture, theatre, workshops, buildings, and architecture of the Bauhaus School (1913-1933). I have only skimmed over the writing which seems to provide an adequate, and at times, detailed overview of the Bauhaus. The binding appears to be good, but I would suggest you handle it with care. How this is being published for so little is beyond me. Taschen seems to have made quite a splash in the world of publishing with their affordable 25th Anniversary Archive Series.

Contents include:


1. On the Origins of the Bauhaus.

2. Weimar Bauhaus-Expressionist Bauhaus.

3. Art and Technology-A New Unity.

4. Dessau Bauhaus: Institute of Design.

5. Hannes Meyer: Necessities, not Luxuries.

6. Mies van der Rohe: The Bauhaus Becomes a School of Architecture.

7. Appendix. (Which includes a nice list of Photo Biographies of the major players.)

I have not included Sub-chapters within the individual Chapter headings. (Look inside the book for these.) There is no Index.

A wonderful and affordable book that belongs in every designer and artist's library, about a school of principles, design, and aesthetics that are still influential in the world of contemporary art and design.

Nice Work TASCHEN! I'm very pleased.

If you have any interest in the Bauhaus this book is for you. The quality is amazing, as is any Taschen book I have seen. Nice photos compliment the history of the Bauhaus. This book does not play sides to any particular era in its history.
