derorchideengarten

“This post features the covers of the first fourteen issues of Der Orchideengarten. I managed to score a bound set of these issues from a German book dealer last year.”


“…there was the obscure and now rather rare German magazine, Der Orchideengarten, which flourished for only three years, from 1919 till 1921. This large-format magazine (similar to the pulp ‘bedsheet’) must surely rank as one of the most beautiful fantasy magazines ever published. Its 51 issues…featured an impressive gallery of fantastic art, ranging from reproductions of medieval woodcuts, and the work of established masters of macabre drawing like Gustave Dore or Tony Johannot, to contemporary German artists like Rolf von Hoerschelmann, Otto Linnekogel, Karl Ritter, Heinrich Kley, or Alfred Kubin….”

Mehr bei “A Journey Round My Scull”

Da muß ich doch einmal beim nächsten Dult Besuch (die Jakobi Dult ist ja nicht mehr so weit weg) bei den Antiquitätenhändlern schauen, ob ich so ein Teil in die Finger bekomme. Schliesslich ist “Der Orchideengarten” in einem Münchner Verlag erschienen.
