about this Item:
Intricately designed book, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the AEG with numerous photogravures from the production of AEG. You'll find rarest figures from the early days of that date already thriving company in all its facets. A true history book of the early days of electricity. Binding and presentation in the best quality bookbinding, gilding, metal relief insert in the lid, all  photogravures protected by interleaf. Set in the Behrens - Antiqua, with the trademark of AEG - honeycomb brand, a document of the thriving electronics industry.

Prof. Peter Behrens is especially known as a co-founder of the German Werkbund and its extensive design work for the AEG before the First World War. He is the prototype of the industrial designer and at the same time as the inventor of corporate design by the AEG from letterhead to the products, such as electric kettle, to the factory buildings, all designed in a uniform sense.

The relief in the cover is designed by Rudolf Bosselt, a fellow-artist of his time on the Darmstadt Mathildenhöhe.
