Cover from Austria
Josef Hoffmann was born on 15.12.1870 in Brtnice, in what is today the Czech Republic, and attended the Higher State Craft School in Brno. After one year working in the building industry he began his studies at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts under Carl Freiherr von Hasenauer and Otto Wagner. In 1897 Hoffmann and a number of like-minded artists formed the Sezession, an association of artists.
On the 13-th of March after 7 days of travelling (so fast! it really surprised me a lot!) I got this amazing cover from Austria. The sheet is covered with real gold! Viellen Danke, Florian!
