Von Dewitz, director of the Agfa Foto-Historama of Museum Ludwig Cologne, and Lebeck, a longtime photojournalist and collector, focus here on the history of photojournalism in illustrated news magazines. This book consists mainly of reproductions of news reports with very concise, chronological essays printed in parallel German and English text. Most of this work deals with 20th-century press photography up to 1973, with considerable attention to war pictures; but there are also chapters on 19th-century photo-reproduction techniques, including woodcut and early halftone processes. Kiosk is unique because it includes many important examples from popular German serials such as Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung and Die Woche. While the choices of illustrations are generally successful enough to minimize the need for lengthy essays, the reader may want to search for more historical background on the magazines included. It should be noted that German is the primary language of this book and that the bibliography and a section including biographical sketches of photographers are provided only in German. Thus, this is recommended for academic libraries and specialized art collections. Eric Linderman, East Cleveland P.L., OH

For the last 12 years, photojournalist Robert Lebeck has been passionately collecting and carefully storing that which most people throw away: magazines. From the illustrated broadsheets of 19th century Europe to the color productions of 1950s and 60s America, Lebeck has kept them all. Born in Berlin in 1929, he took pictures for various magazines before moving to "Stern", the German illustrated periodical, where he worked for 30 years, a period interrupted but once when he did a stint as editor-in-chief of "Geo" magazine. Since 1985, Lebeck has been the director of the Agfa Foto-Historama, located at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne. He is also the author of "Vis-à-vis".
Bodo Von Dewitz, born in 1950, has been Director of the Agfa Foto-Historama of Museum Ludwig in Cologne since 1985. He is the initiator of numerous exhibions on the cultural history of photography.
