Among the foremost textile designers of the 20th century, Anni Albers was a central figure of the Weaving Workshop at the Bauhaus in prewar Germany. Accompanying a centennial retrospective of her work, this volume contains full-color reproductions of Albers's most important weavings, drapery materials and wall coverings, as well as scores of her highly influential commercial textile designs. Anni Albers had an enormous effect on the design of yard materials worldwide. A comprehensive illustrated chronology details her fascinating life and career in Germany and in the United States, where she moved in the 1930s with her husband, the famed painter and instructor Josef Albers.
