From the Publisher. Over 200 of the distinctive images that helped define the look of "the modern"—many never before published. Through posters, advertising stamps, letterheads, package design, magazine jackets, and numerous other commercial ephemera, the cool sophistication of this hybrid deco style looks as fresh today as it did when it first appeared between the world wars. Unique to German Modern is a chapter on the provisional currency known as Notgeld, which towns and even companies were allowed to print in the years of Germany's dire inflation.
