This scarce stereo book was published
It has 120 pages, with 8 full page photos, thick bevelled boards with six recesses to hold the135 original stereographs
(2-2/7" x 5") of the Artists and Art, and the metal viewer.
There are eight full-page photos in the text that depict nudes, horses and portraits of the renowned sculptors Georg Kolbe,
Arno Breker, Josef Thorak and Adolf Wamper at work in their studios.
The massive eagles of Kurt Schmid Ehmen, the superb outdoor art of Josef Wackerie, the fabulous nudes of Fritz Klimsch,
and the sculptured busts of Ferdinand Liebermann are wonderfully presented.
Naturally, the subject of Third Reich sculpture covers a wide range. Among the 135 three-dimensional views are female nudes,
human busts of important figures like Adolf Hitler, Albert Speer, Professor Dornier, Von Moltke, Gauleiter Wagner,
Richard Wagner, male nudes, military figures and eagles, horses, tigers, as well as monumental figures created to decorate facilities of the
Luftwaffe, Reichsautobahn, Wehrmacht, Reichsbank, Hermann Goring’s Luftwaffe Ministerium, Hitler’s Berlin Reichschancellery, (several views),
Radio Deutschland, Ordensburgen of the NSDAP, the Feldherrnhalle, Reichsparteitaggelände (State Party Day Grounds) in
Nuremberg, the Berlin Olympic Stadium, etc. Many of the 3-D photographs were taken at the House of German Art in Munich.
The pictures are of course, double pictures, printed on photographic paper from a negative, and appear very realistic
(3-dimensional) when examined in the viewer. No other photo process can give the viewer an equal feeling of actually
“being there”. Each picture is numbered and has a complete description of the scene printed on the back.
