“Under the protectorate of his Royal Highness the Prince Ludwig of Bavaria: GERMAN BREWERY EXHIBITION with special exhibitions Bavarian barley and hops.”

Designer: Franz Paul Glass (based on a poster design)

I bought this at a recent stamp show simply because I like the way it looks (Egyptian-revival maybe?), so I got a real kick out of finding out this was an advertisement for a beer expo (thanks to Google translate). The designer also seems to have an interesting history as part of a German graphic design collective called “Die 6” although there isn’t too much information on them online.
