If you know of Austrian-born Joseph Binder‘s work at all, it is probably the 1939 New York World’s Fair Poster or his creations for the U.S. Army Air Corps. Binder (1898–1972) was one of the pioneers of “pictorial modernism” that was also practiced by the Binder acolyte Otis Shepard. This “Mixer’s Manual” is a less-known, but no less impressive (undated) example of how Binder’s work evolved toward the end of his career as a graphic designer.
