A biography about the graphic designer Max Hertwig who worked at the beginning of the 20th century with and for such masters of design as Peter Behrens, Walter Gropius, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Chamelion- and Zelig-like he happened to be in the right places at the right time without getting too much attention for his substantial contributions to the discipline and profession of graphic design. This book, by Hertwig's grandson C. Arthur Croyle, a well-known illustrator and painter, provides a comprehensive and exhaustive study of Hertwig's amazing, yet almost forgotten work.
