In 1938, Herbert Bayer emigrated to the United States where he continued to practice Bauhaus principles. As a 'total artist', he created pioneering works in painting, sculpture, environmental works, industrial design, typography, architecture, photography, and applied design. The Bollingen series, named after the home of the psychologist C.G. Jung, boasted academic and literary publications. Here Bayer works his magic on St. John Perse's poem Exile.
