Das Buch vom Bauen / Albert Sigrist. Berlin: Der Bücherkreis, 1930

“Other than a few exceptions in 1933, Tschichold takes over all design aspects of the Bücherkreis books. The difference between Tschichold’s first book and which had gone before was remarkable. Das Buch vom Bauen is designed true to the principles of the New Typography and its cover displays a laminated photo which is unique in the history of the organization and unmistakably reflects its break with the past.”
