116 Issues were published between 1918 and 1932. Both in terms of format (33 x 33 cm.) and in terms of design they occupy an exceptional place in Pre-War art.
Many famous artists designed the lithographed covers, including El Lissitzky and Jan Toorop. The series contains important contributions on architecture (e.g. Frank Lloyd Wright and the Amsterdam School) and on crafts (including the famous woodcuts issue with 60 original woodcuts).
The target price for the entire set is 10,000 Euro.
