Image of the Day

The cover of an advertising brochure for the Nederlandsche Huistelefoon* Company – from a slideshow of graphic works by Dutch designer Piet Zwart (1885-1977) on Design Observer (by way of rare book dealer Ars Libri Ltd). This early Bauhaus/Constructivist/de Stijl-influenced stuff is still the most classic graphic design to me, or at least I think that most good graphic design comes from an extension of this early modern point of view.

*huistelefoon = home telephone
