Illustrierte Magazine

Illustrierte Magazine focuses on illustrated magazines from the era of Classic Modernism. They offer a rich source for the history of the period between the two World Wars, with regard to everyday life, culture, communication, design, and photography. The website offers the complete inventories of "Querschnitt", "UHU", "Kriminal-Magazin", "Jüdische Magazin", "Auto-Magazin", and "Revue des Monats", as well as all issues of the years 1928-1933 of four more titles.  Ten of the most important German-language magazines of the period with roughly 650 issues, with 75.000 printed pages and more than 50.000 illustrations have been digitized and made available online. Brief descriptions of the magazines are also provided.

Basic search is possible. Magazines can also be browsed by title, issue, or publication year. In addition, texts and images have been indexed, making it possible to search by keywords related to form and content (genre, type of text, subject, technique, and period). Each page is shown separately, in high definition.

Cooperation partners of the project are the Universität Erfurt and the Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB). The project has various sponsors and lenders.
