• Image of Anni Albers: Notebook 1970–1980

Afterword by Brenda Danilowitz

This facsimile of the only known notebook of Anni Albers offers insight into the methodology of a modern master. Beginning in 1970, Anni Albers filled her graph-paper notebook regularly until 1980. This rare and previously unpublished document of her working process contains intricate drawings for her large body of graphic work, as well as studies for her late knot drawings. The notebook follows Albers's deliberations and progression as a draftsman in their original form. It reveals the way she went about making complex patterns, exploring them piece by piece, in a visually dramatic and beautiful series of geometric arrangements.
