"… accomplishes what the other books on the Bauhaus don't, which is to demonstrate, in concise language and clear graphics, exactly how Bauhaus design theory works in practice."The Wall Street Journal
"A fascinating work of design theory and graphic design." Architectural Record
"…an extremely important primer for anyone who knows the legend but not the story of the Bauhaus and its methods."—Steven Heller, The Daily Heller
 A new edition of a design classic on the Bauhaus, with a preface by leading designers Ellen Lupton and J. Abbot Miller.

Originally published in 1991, 
The ABC’s of Triangle, Square, Circle traces the origin and impact of the Bauhaus (the legendary art school in Dessau, Germany, operational from 1919 to 1933, that transformed architecture and design around the world) in relation to design, psychoanalysis, geometry, early childhood education, and popular culture.
The text is a provocative exploration of the school’s aims and achievements, while the book itself is a manifesto of Bauhaus ideals, synthesizing editorial concept, typography, and craftsmanship.
Designed in a manner that honors the aspirations of the Bauhaus, this extraordinary manual is a source of inspiration for design professionals and students and a revelation for all those interested in twentieth-century culture.
