Hans Hartmann: Ein Leben fur die Grafik
I was excited to receive a package from Hans Harthman’s daughter, Fanny Hartmann last week. Contained within was a copy of Hans Hartmann: Ein Lebenfur die Grafik, a 1991 monograph compiled by Fanny with contributions from Joseph Marti and Fred Zaugg. The book is filled with full-color illustrations and photos from Hans’s prolific career as a designer and artist that spanned over 5 decades. Hans Hartmann’s name is often absent from design history books, so most of the pieces are new to me. I’m surprised by the breadth and depth of is work. I’ve seen examples of his posters and logos in the past, but I was unaware that he had ventured into sculpture, stained glass windows and exhibition design.
