LEUCHTTURM1917 celebrates the geometry of design and 100 years of Bauhaus with the “Everything starts from a dot.” centenary edition. Primal, primary and pure writing pleasure.

Wassily Kandinsky, painter, graphic artist, art theorist and teacher of the Bauhaus movement, summed it up with the following: “Everything starts from a dot”. 

Clean, reduced forms, functional details and colours are core components and form the basic principles of the Bauhaus movement. Leuchtturm adopted the Bauhaus idea and created a special edition to mark the centenary of the birth of the Bauhaus movement, which is in line with the classic Bauhaus design elements.

A characteristic feature of the “100 Years Bauhaus” special edition notebooks is the Wassily Kandinsky quote embossed on the front cover: “Everything starts from a dot”. The cover, fore-edge, flyleaf and page dots all come in a matching colour. A brief profile of Wassily Kandinsky is featured on the endpaper. These books contain all the well-known LEUCHTTURM1917 details, such as index, page numbers, 2 bookmarks and a sticker set for labeling and archiving.
