THE BAUHAUS BOOKS 1925–1930

The increase in the Bauhaus part of the book programme can be read as a strategy against the growing political pressure felt in Weimar. Since the founding of the school, director Gropius had been involved in public relations work to counter criticism and attacks. Nor is the intention to present the results of the school in the context of international avant-garde free from the need to improve the school's image and support its uncertain position in solidarity. With the Bauhaus-owned publishing house finally in 1923, it seemed easier to do this, whenever necessary, in the Bauhaus-typical form.
