Kandinsky's first contribution to the Bauhaus printing workshop was a portfolio entitled Small Worlds. This group of twelve prints included lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts. Ten years later, Kandinsky reminded Scheyer of the portfolio's high quality: "All copies were printed under my continuous guidance. . . .the entire execution is first class."
