Hi, I'm a Brazilian student of graphic design. I'm doing a research in the influences of the Art Deco movement in the typographic field and also about Streamline movement in the USA. I would be very thankful if you could send me some information. Thank you very much. Paulo

Typography draws it influences from a variety of overlapping areas. Bauhaus was a strong influence on both style and form
