An exhibition from the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, exploring the work processes and principal contributions of three ground-breaking graphic designers—Moshe Spitzer, Franzisca Baruch, and Henri Friedlaender—each of whom studied and worked in pre-World War II Germany before immigrating to Israel, where they continued to be active for decades. Catalog with introductory remarks made by James S. Snyder for the opening of the exhibition in Jerusalem, 2015 (reprinted from the original catalog). Foreword by Klaus-Dieter Lehmann. Essay on the concept of the exhibition by curator Ada Wardi, followed by additional brief essays related to each of the three graphic designers: “Von der Kalligraphie zum Schriftentwurf: Franzisca Baruch in Berlin” [From calligraphy to font design: Franzisca Baruch in Berlin], “The last thing to learn is simplicity: Henri Friedlaender in Holland” (both by Philipp Messner), and “Zwei hebräische Rilke-Ausgaben: Moshe Spitzer und sein Verlag Tarshish” [Two Hebrew editions of works of Rainer Maria Rilke: Moshe Spitzer and his Tarshish Publishing House].
