HEARTFIELD, John. Der Kaiser ging, die Generäle blieben. Ein deutscher Roman. By Theodor Plivier. 347 pp. 8vo., bound in original wrappers designed by John Heartfield. Berlin: Malik Verlag, 1932.
A fine copy of this restrained and subtle example of Heartfield's work as a jacket designer. On the front cover the title is set against the flag of the Weimar Republic, while the rear cover is the flag of the former Empire. There is a little fading, but this is still a good copy of a hard to find jacket.
Siepmann. Montage: John Heartfield vom Club Dada zur Arbeiter-Illustrierter Zeitung A152.
