26 issues from 1939 to 1952.

New arrival this morning with a pack of 26 issues of german magazine Gebrauchsgraphik. Each issue is quite in a good state, and I’m happy enough to see the pre-war period in my hands. The content looks great even if the articles are quite poor in analysis. Interesting to see the different vision with Graphis for the same period, and also inspiring when you know that Gebrauchsgraphik stands as a model for the best graphic design magazines like, Arts & Métiers Graphiques (France, 1927), Graphis (Switzerland, 1944), Portfolio (U.S.A., 1950) and probably others.
