RUECKERT, Otto. Die Kunsthandwerkliche Förderung des Baumalers. 63,  pp. Illustrated with 42 colour halftone plates, and a few small diagrams in the text. 4to., 229 x 178 mm, bound in publisher's printed cloth-backed boards. Dresden: Verlag des Verbandes Sächsischer Vereinigungen selbständiger Maler und Lackierer, 1929.
First Edition of this most appealing survey of design and colour for Bauhaus architecture and home construction, with chapters on the aesthetics of house surfaces, colour in interior design, the psychology of colour, the effects of colour in space, etc., plus a few passages relating to typography. The plates, in muted colours, show a variety of colour charts, colours on room walls, overviews of house plans showing differently coloured rooms and an illustration of perspective; all strongly evoking the Bauhaus style. Spine somewhat faded, otherwise a tight and clean copy. Rückert's Kunsthandwerkliche is a visual gem of architectural bookmaking.
