Folio. XV, [1], 117, [1], XII, 118pp. Original printed dust-jackets over gray cloth with gray lettering on cover. Tipped-in photographic frontispiece in first volume. Laeuger see's the basic requirement for all education in art in the awakening and training of the senses. "To perceive colors and form, to read them, is to look into the soul of colors and form. The ability to do that can not be acquired through reasoning. Observe nature, the sky and the earth, follow their rules, experience their spirit, get in tune - that is the way. Important is to recognize who/what plays the lead and who the supporting role. Always keep your eye on the whole. One can achieve major effects with simple means." Remarkable work on architectural and art book design: Volume one covering color and shape in architecture and interior design. Volume two elaborating on basics of painting, urban planning, garden design and advertising. Volume I complete with 80 magnificent four color, 40 b/w or two color tipped-ins, and several inserts. Volume II complete with 65 four color, 56 b/w or two color tipped-ins as well as several inserts. Very minor and sporadic creasing and soiling on dust-jackets. Text in German, gothic script. Dust-jackets, bindings and interior in overall very good condition. About the author: Max Laeuger (or Laeuger) was born in Lörrach in the southwest of Germany on September 30, 1864. He was a truly multitalented: Architect, garden-designer, painter, draughts man and professor. He was one of the founding members of the Deutsche Werkbund in 1907. Laeuger was an autodidact in the skills of pottery, studied at the Karlsruhe Polytechnic and eventually became a professor. He is usually known as Professor Max Laeuger and some of his work is marked thus. In 1895 after traveling throughout Europe visiting the major cultural centers to study art he was appointed as the director of the art pottery department of Tonwerke Kandern close to his home town. From 1921 he had his own workshop in premises formerly owned by the company and produced designs for them there. The work produced fell into three types; slip decorated wares designed by Laeuger but produced entirely by the factory, pieces made at the factory but decorated and glazed by Laeuger and one-off pieces by the professor made from beginning to end in his own workshop. All were marketed by Majolika-Manufaktur. Through the thirties and into the Second World War he worked on his own, but after his workshop was destroyed in 1944 he returned to Lörrach where he died on December 12, 1952. Laeuger was a major figure in German ceramics. His designs and his glazes had 'organic' characteristics that are unmistakable and his work is much sought-after by collectors. His works are full of life, ceramics with a soul!. Bookseller Inventory #
