Book image

this 8-page leaflet in din a5 size is the catalogue of a friedrich vordemberge-gildewart (1899-1962) solo exhibition. it was organized by the kunstverein in ulm where the artist worked as a teacher at the "hfg", the new school for design.

Book image

the typography by "v–g" (impressum) is modernist: asymmetric page layout, and a lower-case sans-serif (futura) in a tiny size. this small catalogue demonstrates again how v–g's art and typography share the same design philosophy.
