Printing and Typographic Works from the 50s and 60s
Published by Walther König, Köln/Hansjörg Mayer. Edited by Hansjörg Mayer. Text by Stefan Ripplinger.
This volume surveys the astonishing variety of Hansjörg Mayer's (born 1943) concrete and visual poetry—a field in which he was a protagonist—alongside other typographic and printed works, several of which are in color. Also included are reproductions of all 26 issues of his influential concrete poetry broadsheet Futura.
German publisher, author and artist Hansjörg Mayer (born 1943) has been taking photographs of structures and strange surfaces since the late 1950s. This publication highlights these works, which emphasize the fleeting and the ephemeral (a quality intensified by the advances of camera technology—digital cameras and smart phones).
