Braun last edition off-set litho print portfolio (alu box)

The folio consists in a contents sheet, a 6 pg soft cover photo essay on the Atelier range 1979 - 1991 of Rams and Heartwein; 20 colour off-set lithographic prints 37 cm x 37 cm of Rams' audio designs for BRAUN, predominantly of the 50's and 60's; 20 off-set lithographic prints of grey ink on tracing paper. Many of the latter showing Ram's preparatory drawings (and alluding to his practice of pencil sketching onto a long roll of tracing paper) can be overlaid on the colour print to produce a composite image of product and design drawing.

In sum, a trove of beautiful material; every print deserves framing. The following Rams designs appear in the print series:

 T 1000 Worldreceiver, 1963, Sk 4, Phono super, 1956; TP 1, Phono-Transistor, 1969; Studio 2, 1959; LE 1, 1959; Atelier 3 Kompaktgert, 1962; PS 45 turntable, 1962; TC 20 1963; TS 45, 1964; TG 60 Reel to Reel, 1965; L450 Flat Speaker, 1965; CSV 250, 1956; Regie 308, 1973.
