We recently took in a good stash of posters from the Klingspor Museum in Germany. As we flipped through them, one made us want to speak rooster. This one. What a beauty. The rubbish photograph we took doesn’t do it justice. We didn’t know anything about Otto Rohse or his press, but have spent the afternoon digging deep. (Or, as deep as Google and Google Translate will allow.) This is a poster from the 1973 exhibition of Rohse’s work as a printer, engraver, and publisher. If you missed the show, put this on your wall and tell your friends you saw it.
- Size: 16.5 × 23.375 inches
- Pages: 1 sheet
- Medium: Letterpress in two colors
- Condition: Some kinks, but mostly fine. Also, the lousy photograph suggests that this is discolored. We just don't know how to light things. In reality this looks good, and that bit at the top that looks badly bumped is really nothing. The light just hit it the wrong way.
- Binding: NA
- Publisher: Klingspor Museum, 1973
