The First Two Volumes of the Very Rare and Beautiful Design Magazine, "Die Fläche"
[Art and Design]. [Felician Baron Myrbach, Josef Hoffmann,
Koloman Moser, Alfred Roller, editors]. Die
Fläche. Vienna: Anton Schroll, [n.d., ca. 1902-1910]. First
editions. Two volumes in three portfolios. Designs in full color.
Small folios. Approximately 12 x 8 inches. [iv], 192; 12; 13-32
pages. On loose folded sheets, as issued. Complete. In original
publisher's portfolios (the first volume in quarter blue cloth over
boards, blue cloth tips, printed paper on boards, the other two
portfolios are thin boards, with printed paper labels on front
boards. Portfolios worn and soiled, with boards either nearly
detached or entirely detached and spines chipped or otherwise
damaged, interiors with some minor occasional edgewear, creasing
and thumbsoiling, yet still bright. A few ink markings. Still, a
very good example of a very rare and beautiful item.
"'Die Fläche' (literally, 'The Surface'), produced in portfolio form, was formulated as a 'Musterbuch,' or pattern book, of graphic insignia and poster designs. 'Die Fläche,' like 'Ver Sacrum,' was conceived as an art object" [Kallir].
