Galka Scheyer Atlas

Coconut Palms, Honolulu, Ansichtskarte, 1931

Many addresses in Braunschweig, Europe and the entire world were reason enough to publish a Galka Scheyer atlas. Postcards from early 20th century, archived illustrations and present-day photographs show the locations where Galka Scheyer stayed. 52 little stories about homes or cities leave no doubt: globetrotter Galka lived a glamorous, almost cinematic life between Braunschweig and Hollywood.

The stories in the GALKA SCHEYER ATLAS were written by Gilbert Holzgang. Thanks to the team of Israel Jacobson Network, they are available online, in German.
