This book is actually about the Bauhaus school The author s main thrust is to provide a corrective to the Bauhaus mythology created by Walter Gropius at the time and long after It gives a nuts and bolts description of how the school actually worked under its three directors There are a good number of contemporary photographs that are interesting but of course they are in black and white and often not very large There is a fair amount of art theoretical gobbledygook that is probably not much comprehensible in the original German On the positive side the book is inexpensive and quite good at what it attempts to do On the other hand it may disappoint a casual reader who is looking for the usual lavish celebration of Bauhaus s influence on modernist design and architecture
