Alki1's collection of 20th Century Graphic Design

This is one of the best image repositories for 20th century graphic design (especially the early stuff, such as Bauhaus) that I have ever come across:

Alki1 (Maryellen McFadden), from Portland Oregon describes herself as a "Child of the Great Depression, member of the Greatest Generation, retired graphic designer, college faculty, vocational instructor, cooperative education placement person, lover of photography and Washington State Parks, eighty two years old."

And long may she prosper! Thank you Alki1, for this invaluable resource!

I am linking two images to show how absolutely brilliant this collection is: Above is a magazine cover which Alki1 thinks was designed by Herbert Bayer in 1929 (wow! - how often does one come across something like this?); and below is a Renå Binder and Max Eichheim poster for the International Press Exhibition Pressa, held in Cologne, Germany in 1928.
