Bauhaus Postcards

Presented as a set of three copies each of the original 20 cards inside a giftable hardcover box, these bold, colorful postcards preserve a major early design statement of the Bauhaus.

In 1923, Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius commissioned 20 postcards from artists such as Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky to use as promotional flyers for the school’s first exhibition. Issued here for the first time in their original format, these rare and priceless postcards perfectly express the spirit of the early Bauhaus.

Featuring artwork digitized using state-of-the-art capture technology, and printed stochastically at 100 percent of the original size, with space on the back for messages, each postcard is a miniature piece of art. From the expressionism of Klee and Kandinsky to the modernism of Herbert Bayer and László Moholy-Nagy, Bauhaus Postcards allows readers to send (or keep!) a precious piece of design history.
