Join the contributors of our latest book for a visit to Vienna in 1900, a moment with an outsized influence on lettering and graphic design.

Discover the world of Vienna 1900 graphic design in a roundtable with the contributors to our latest book, Die Fläche: Design and Lettering of the Vienna Secession, 1902–1911. Diane V. Silverthorne, Dan Reynolds, and Megan Brandow-Faller will share insights from their essays and discuss the innovative “surface art” that emerged from the Secessionist movement, the Wiener Werkstätte arts and crafts co-op, and the pathbreaking design courses at the Vienna Applied Arts School. Highlighting graphic work by leading Secession designers, women artists, and the influential lettering theorist Rudolf von Larisch and his followers, their discussion will explore how Die Fläche opens a window into a watershed moment in design history.
