Note

One of the very few – the only one, as far as I know – poster designs by Armin Hofmann that he did not sign. Maybe he was not allowed to? Because Arp did not tolerate anybody else next to himself? Or because Hofmann used an artwork by Arp (developed from a relief created 1917) for a change instead of applying his pure typographic style and would have felt a little unpleasant to sign?
Whatsoever: A rare and impressive Original Swiss exhibition poster promoting Arp‘s show 1962 at the Kunsthalle Basel.
