HAFA Hatschek and Farkas photography, optics, radio
Book (cca. 16 x 23 cm)

The cover of the ephemera was designed by Sándor Bortnyik. Sándor Bortnysik was one of the most important graphic designers and painters of the 20th century. He introduced - alongside Róbert Berény and Lajos Kassák - the modernist constructivist style. Until 1933 he was designing according to the modernist style but in 1933 - the year of this ephemera - he announced the death of constructivism, saying that it became boring. He turned to a more picturesque world.
The cover of this ephemera is among the last pieces what Bortnyik created in a modernist style. The simple typography, the red and black colours, the diagonal composition are all typical elements of modernist style.
