The New Vision Fundamentals of Design: Painting Sculpture Architecture.

New York: W. W. Norton & Co, 1938. First Edition Thus. No 1 of the New Bauhaus Books.
"The New Vision was written to inform laymen and artists about the basic elements of the Bauhaus education: the merging of theory and practice in design.
"America is the bearer of a new civilization whose task is simultaneously to cultivate and to industrialize a continent. It is the ideal ground on which to work out an educational principle which strives for the closest connection between art, science, and technology.
"To reach this objective one of the problems of Bauhaus education is to keep alive in grown-ups the child’s sincerity of emotion, his truth of observation, his fantasy and his creativeness. That is why the Bauhaus does not employ a rigid teaching system. Teachers and students in close collaboration are bound to find new ways of handling materials, tools and machines for their designs.
"This book contains an extract of the work in our preliminary course, which naturally develops from day to day while practiced."
