"With its first issues in January of 1918 Wendingen set a new standard in arts publishing. In its combination of rigorous thinking about the world of contemporary arts and its exquisite design and production, it surpassed all other journals of its time - and those that followed. Under the direction of architect Hendricus Theodorus Wijdeveld, Wendingen (which translates roughly as "upheaval") sought out the newest ideas and most creative practitioners in all of the visual arts, including architecture, graphics, sculpture, ceramics, glass, and theatrical design." "In its fourteen-year history, Wendingen featured the work of such diverse artists and architects as Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, Michel de Klerk, El Lissitzky, Erich Mendelsohn, and Eileen Gray. From 1925-1926, it published a series of seven issues of unparalleled beauty devoted to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright." "Wendingen: A Journal for the Arts, 1918-1932 is the only comprehensive study of this extraordinary publication, which is prized by collectors and historians alike. All 116 Wendingen covers are produced in full color and annotated by Martijn F. Le Coultre. Dutch-design scholar Alston Purvis provides a historical introduction, and curator Ellen Lupton addresses the journal's relevance to today's arts community."--Jacket.
