A.D.A.C. Kostumball 1930 (literally translates to "A.D.A.C. Costume Ball 1930"), the 1930 German poster promoting a costume and fancy dress event by the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club (General German Automobile Club), which was held at the Deutsches Theater in Munich, Germany. Note that this poster features wild artwork of female partygoers in a car with a human head by Franz Paul Glass. Glass was a German graphic designer, painter, illustrator and typographer from the 1910s to the 1960s. In 1914 Glass (along with Valentin Zietara, Friedrich Heubner, Carl Moos, Emil Preetorius and Max Schwarzer) founded the artist group "Die Sechs" (The Six) to counterbalance Ludwig Hohlwein, who was the dominant figurehead in the field of German advertising. Their service included the offer of six different initial designs for every job.

Artist: Franz Paul Glass

Condition: good to very good. The poster was never folded. It has a strip of plastic with holes attached to the back of the top border (no doubt this was done as a way of hanging this poster with others on racks, and being able to easily access any of them). The plastic strip could be removed by a professional or talented amateur, or of course, the excess plastic could simply be trimmed off. It has a 2" tear in the bottom border that has paper tape on the back, and two tape stains in the bottom blank border near that. Otherwise, the poster is in nice condition!
