The Taschen basic art series are bargain books. The quality of the images and text are amazing value for the price. This particular book provides a great insight into the the Bauhaus movement.

For those wishing for a more indepth look into the movements influence on the modern world other reads are more suitable. This book however is a cheap book perfect for developing an understanding of Bauhaus.

A basic book, that gives you the good understanding of a very interesting school and thinking of design. But seen better books about the bauhaus school - was a bit disappointed, since it doesn't add much new, if already knows the basic....

I love Taschen's approach to publishing. They make really great value but high quality books with accessible writing. What more could you want?!

The Bauhaus book is an overview of the movement which examines the key practitioners that helped define it. All the included images are of very high quality and the writing is engaging and definitely not overly flowery and as obtuse as some art writing.

A great introduction to the movement at a giveaway price!

Format: Paperback
as a proud owner of a repro Bauhaus chair by Marcel Breur (a pristine s/h bargain charity shop buy - but i digress) i started to delve into the history of the chair (a B2) + then the rich legacy of the entire Bauhaus school of architecture + design. and so to this inexpensive nicely presented taschen softback book.

measuring 9" x 7 1/2" with a well written concise history, as well as political context of the origins + eventual dissolution of the school : Magdalene Droste is informative if not as detailed as Frank Whitford in his bauhaus book for thames + hudson. this taschen book offers many fine + fascinating images of the people in situ during this time , along with a more architectural emphasis, as well as the key people :Gropius,Meyer, Mies van Rohe but also the start at least of a gender egaliterian nature far ahead of its 1919-1933 era, although Droste is critical still of the still male dominated school "masters"at the Bauhaus.

my headline comment of not enough "eye candy" may seems crass but this edition does not contain many colour illustrations of key design / art works : be it exhibition flyers,furniture or textile designs -so that is a shame. however ,Droste's is a well written book that just lacks a little visusal "oomph" for me. Whitford's thames and hudson book (similarly priced) goes deeper into the historical-social context and offers more colour illustrations. or - for total eye candy overload in glorious large images go for the budget price "50 Bauhaus Icons You Should Know" (prestel) which makes up for the rather monochromatic taschen basic art volume here.
