A magnum opus! Compiled and edited by legendary German bookdealer/collector Juergen Holstein. A visual feast for historians and book gatherers of all persuasions, celebrating one of the most interesting, if not turbulent, cultural periods in twentieth century history. The book was wonderfully reviewed in Der Spiegel, ending with the following: "Blickfang", ein kiloschwerer Bildband mit 1000 Abbildungen, wuerdigt die nahezu ausgestorbene Kunst echter Umschlaggestaltung - und wird dank enormen Themenvielfalt zur Zeitreise in die wohl kreativste Epoche des 20. Jahrhunderts." The book is currently out of print, and we may have the only copies available. Because of limited availability and very high shipping costs to the US market, price is net to all, with s/h extra.
