The latest publication from the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) is Charles Hasler Sends His Greetings, which features a selection of highlights from the eclectic collection of mid-century designer Charles Hasler.
A typographer and graphic designer, Hasler served on the Festival of Britain typographic panel, but now is less well known than many of his contemporaries.
Throughout his working life, Hasler was a prolific collector of all kinds of printed ephemera, from greetings cards and advertising to invitations and magazines. His collection includes examples of graphic design, illustration and typography by artists including Edward McKnight Kauffer, Paul Nash, Barbara Jones and Abram Games, many of whom were personal friends. This book features over fifty rare and unusual items from Hasler’s collection, from Victoriana to mid-century modern, many of which have never been seen before.
Foreword by Phil Cleaver; Introduction by Zoë Hendon; and Essay by Jane Audas.
Hardback, 148.5mm by 210mm, 57 colour illustrations.
Limited Edition of 500 copies.
