Denmark, Sweden, Norway
The Landscape / Architecture / Life Of The People

A very beautiful photographic record of full page photographs (in high quality photo gravure technique)
featuring topography, remarkable sites, culture, arts and people of Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

This precious book was not affordable by too many people at that time.
And there is no other book of that time which comes close to the printing quality of that title.

The photographer Kurt Hielscher travelled 3 years through Scandinavia from ~1928-1931
and made 4100 photos of Denmark, Sweden and Norway w/ premier photo equipment;
his Zeiss Ikon/Ica camera and Zeiss objectives on Agfa Chromo Isorapid and
Chromo Isolar plates and Isopan films.

This book represents the best 291 photos out of 4,100 from old Scandinavia.

Photographs titled in English, German, French and Danish/Swedish/Norwegian.

From the series "Orbis Terrarum", a series of early photobooks portraying the regions of the world.
