Artist Friends · The most beautiful pages of the Domberger Guestbooks and other documents · 1948-2013

They said hello, thank you and made dedications. With friendly aphorisms and spontaneous pictures. Some of them in a compressed way, others with countless words and forms and many with exuberant imagination. They wrote, sketched, drew, painted and collaged. They left us great drawings and paintings – and a few naughty ones, too. Page after page, sheet after sheet, a fascinating testament evolved from an unusual connection of visual artists and their congenial helpers – the two creative screen printers by the name of Domberger.

Here are some of the artists: Willi Baumeister, Richard Hamilton, Albert
Joho, Max Ackermann, Herbert Bayer, Max Bill, Agnes Martin, Robert Mangold, Fritz Ruoff, Richard Estes, Sigmar Polke, Robert Indiana,Victor Vasarely, Ton Mars, Keith Haring, Werner Berges, José deGuimarães, Heinz Mack, Pierre Soulages, Eric Bulatow, Roy Lichtenstein, Raymond E.Waydelich, Nicholas Krushenick, Tomi Ungerer, Horst Antes, Imi Knoebel,Ilya Kabakow, Antoni Tapiés, Karl Pfahler, Cy Twombly, Gerald Laing, Iwan Tschuikow, Adolf Fleischmann, Lampert Maria Wintersberger.

Not only did these artists leave us remarkable works but also their thank yous and dedications alongside these illustrations – all of them originals: notes from and to people who became friends often in the process of working together, designing, preparing and printing of the original screenprints.
