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.

    More Information:

    "'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].

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
