About the Poster: Pipe smoking is the practice of tasting (or, less commonly, inhaling) the smokeproduced by burning a substance, most commonly tobacco, in a pipe. It is the oldest traditional form of smoking. Although it has declined somewhat in popularity it is still widely practiced and is very common in some parts of Scandinavia.
Beautifully detailed, this small gem was designed by A. Paul Weber and printed by Erasmusdrick in Berlin. It was included in a 1927 book edited by Dr. Walter Schubert. Titled "Die Deutsche Werbe Graphik," it was published in Berlin by Francken and Lang. It is the only edition of this important study of a great era of German graphic design featuring posters, packaging, advertising, book illustrations, programs for theater, and sports. Illustrated mostly with tipped-in color plates of work by Bernhard, Hohlwein, Klinger, Preetorius, Gipkens, Kleukens, Cissarz, Pechstein and many others, this book and the illustrations contained within it are considered highly collectable and very, very rare.
We feel it would be perfect for any office, kitchen, or even bathroom!
