Item description for Die Kunst Des Spiegel/The Art of Der Spiegel: Titel-Illustrationen aus funf Jabrzehnten/Cover Illustrations over Five Decades by Aust Stefan...

Front cover illustrations for DER SPIEGEL have a long history. Commissioned artists such as Braldt Bralds, Michael Matthias Prechtl, Dieter Wiesmuller or Rafal Olbinski rank among the best illustrators in the world. For five decades, their talent for illustrating current events and contemporary themes has helped to define DER SPIEGEL'S look. Now for the first time, original illustrations and corresponding magazine covers are included in a beautifully produced catalogue to accompany a current museum exhibition. One hundred and fifty illustrations by sixty artists are featured along with biographical information on each artist and discussions of artistic approaches. A preface by Steven Heller, the distinguished Art Director for The New York Times, opens the book and an interview with long-time cover editor Eberhardt Wachsmith completes the volume.

REMARKABLE GRAPHICS AND IMAGES  Dec 29, 2004

"Der Spiegel," a popular German weekly news magazine is not only known for its timely provocative articles but also for its unique cover illustrations. These covers reflect the current events covered within the magazine, and thus stand as a testament to their time.

Now, teNeues has collected some 200 illustrations commissioned by "Der Spiegel" and presented them in a folio size volume. These covers span five decades and include works by such internationally known artists as Braldt Bralds, Michael Matthias Prechtl, and Rafal Olbinski. The catalogue accompanies a museum exhibition which may be seen early next year in New York City. In addition to the cover illustrations readers will find biographical sketches of the artists as well as informative texts describing how various artists approach their work.

Steven Heller who is considered to be one of the foremost experts on the development of graphic design has said of this volume, "For at least one week each of these images was deemed important enough to be on the cover of a major national magazine.. This catalogue allows the ephemeral to be permanent and the fleeting to be treasured."

Those with an interest in graphics and images will find much to enjoy in "The Art of Der Spiegel."
