PUBLISHED A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THE THIRD REICH CAME TO AN END! WITH RARE FANTASTIC FULL COLOR / FULL PAGE ADVERTISINGS!

Offered here is a treasure for anyone interested in artful Third Reich adver-tising! Since 1843 the Weber publishing house in Leipzig published this periodical, the "Illustrirte Zeitung Leipzig". Because of the "Total War" efforts (the need to save paper, etc.) the publication ended in 1943 until in December of 1944 this 10-3/4 x 15(!) inch, 186 page special issue in soft cover was published. It is subtitled "Der Europäische Mensch (The Europe-an Human), a very propagandistic piece of literature which is showing the achievements of "civilized" Europe and what would be lost if the Bolshevist hordes cannot be stopped. There are many interesting, heavily illustrated articles about this subject but the highlight of this item are the many rare excellent Third Reich advertisings! Many of them full page and in full color, crisp and in great detail, every one of them a piece of art by itself! The amazing part is that this great item was published only a few months before the Third Reich had to surrender! These advertisings are true Third Reich art and that is why we decided to list them in the Third Reich Art section of this web site.

artful advertisings for Henschel engines and the Messerschmitt company.

full page advertising for "BMW, the fastest sports car in the world" and Arcus, Germany's oldest maker of aircraft engines.

A report on Arno Breker and his work as one example of a lot of interesting articles in this rare later war item.

A great assortment of very artful and colorful Third Reich advertisings, published less than five month before Nazi Germany came to an end!
