At the beginning of the 20th century, Lucian Bernhard invented a new, modern and pragmatic way to design posters. His Sachplakat (Object Poster), presented objects depicted by themselves in flat colors, with no ornamentation and no shadow, against a monochromatic background with very large, bold typography. This is an early and rare Sachplakat preceding by a year his paradigm-shifting design for Priester matches. DFP-III 130 (var).
