A lively introduction to the seminal art and design movement that changed the way we see, think and live. Now 100 years old, the Bauhaus still looks just as fresh today as it did when it began. It was a place to experiment and embrace a new creative freedom. Thanks to this philosophy, the Bauhaus still shapes the world around us.

Trace THE STORY OF BAUHAUS through the 100 personalities, designs, ideas and events that shaped this monumental movement. Learn about leaders Paul Klee, Walter Gropius, Anni Albers and Wassily Kandinsky; witness wild parties and groundbreaking events that would revolutionise contemporary design; and discover a range of ideas and new ways of thinking. Frances Ambler is a London-based writer and art historian. She has a special interest in 20th-century design and is the author of Mid-Century Modern: Icons of Design. She has worked with museums and galleries across the globe, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, London's Victoria and Albert Museum and the Scottish Sculpture Trust. A lively introduction to the seminal art and design movement that changed the way we see, think and live.
