26 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting the spirit of Berlin, this book is a photographic journey into the city's history. Devastated by two world wars, divided during the Cold War, and liberated with the destruction of the wall, Berlin has survived extraordinary circumstances over the course of its history and emerged as a center of European power and culture. From 1860 to the present day, this book presents the story of Berlin in photographs, portraits, maps, and aerial views. With nearly 700 pages of emotional, atmospheric images, this is the most comprehensive photographic study on Berlin ever made. More than a tribute to the city and its history, this book especially pays homage to Berlin's inhabitants: full of hope and strength, in their faces is reflected Berlin's undying soul. Also included is: an index of photographers' biographies

Karl Blossfeldt, 1865-1932 : the complete published work by Hans-Christian Adam( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German photography pioneer Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) photographed plants so beautifully, and with such originality, that his work transcends the medium itself. Over more than 30 years, he took thousands of photographs, revealing a formally rigorous talent whose precision and dedication bridge the 19th- and 20th-century worlds of image making and bring a distinctly sculptural aspect to a firmly two-dimensional art form. Beautifully but starkly composed against plain cardboard backgrounds, Blossfeldt's images, relying on a northern light for their sense of volume, reveal nothing of the man but everything of themselves. They are still lifes, piercingly final statements on their subject, and have endured owing to their aesthetics and the ongoing fascination of students and photographers. Like their maker, they are quietly and lastingly effective."--Jacket
