meister

stölzl crossed out the word 'student' on her bauhaus identification card and replaced it with the word 'master.' significantly, she did not use 'meisterin,' the female word for master, but rather 'meister' plain and simple.

i bought the most amazing book from my favorite store in the mission: gravel and gold. the book is called gunta stölzl: bauhaus master. through writings and artworks from stölzl from about 1917-1931, the book gives an incredibly intimate look at the bauhaus’ only female instructor. the images are so well printed that i found myself repeatedly touching them with my finger to confirm that they were not pasted in. highly recommended!
