Herbert Matter was a Swiss-born American photographer and designer who pioneered the photomontage in commercial art.

Stanford University brings you a Special Collections Exhibit from the Herbert Matter Archive. When you arrive to the page, you’ll find a brief introduction and a few featured items on the main page.

To see more of Matter’s work, you’ll want to click Browse. This will whisk you over to the collections where you have the option of Browsing all Items, or browsing by individual collections.

Head on over to the About section to learn more about Herbert Matter and his work.

And if this has just whet your appetite to learn more (like it did for me) you can also check out the Herbert Matter Official Website where you’ll find a biography, timeline, different collections of his work, and more.
