Siegmund Forst: A Lifetime in Arts and Letters
An artist from Vienna, Forst's graphic designs for Hebrew textbooks and Haggadot revolutionized the look of Jewish book publications in America. His innovations - a modern American look for Jewish characters and a bold, new graphic design for texts - forever changed the look of American Jewish ublications. By setting new standards, Forst had a major impact on Jewish popular culture and the way in which Jews were visually portrayed and perceived. The subjects he portrayed included Biblical heroes, Zionist pioneers, and Americans celebrating Jewish holidays.
