wow, 1922. thanks for the pdf brother. eye seen this aesthetic appropriated for a great many records & zines. supersweet. i wonder, is this the authors' original 'sketch' from early last century or another individuals' collage/interpretation of the original manuscript? also been listening to yr alan kremski post owl day. you will be missed :)

Hello, brother Owl, I'm glad to see you here.

This version was made for the English language edition (first published in 1969) in an attempt to adhere as closely as possible to the original typography and make-up of the second German edition (Bauhausbücher series, 1927).

Btw, I found this interesting document (Page 109):

Transfiguring the Urban Gray, László Moholy-Nagy’s Film Scenario ‘Dynamic of the Metropolis’ by Edward Dimendberg.
