This Don Pietro ad by Hans Bohn was first created in 1923 and was printed as a mini lithographic poster in 1927 in a 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.
Hans Bohn (1891-1980) was a German graphic designer, typographer, and teacher. He studied at the Technical Schools Offenbach (today HfG Offenback) and was a pupil of Rudolf Koch and Franz Franke. He developed the fonts Orplid, Mondial, Allegro, and the heavier weight of Kuenstler Script.
