Kahn portrait: Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung

Sep 29, 2013

The Sunday edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeine (a leading German newspaper) devotes a two-page spread to Fritz Kahn, including 11 illustrations from his books. Journalist Sonja Kastilan recalls the life of the popular science author and and his “strong sense of image”. And she refers to the new Fritz Kahn monograph: “An opulent coffee-table book – published by Taschen on the occasion of Fritz Kahn’s 125th birthday – shows how multifaceted, impressively complex, and at the same time comprehensible his depictions were.”  In an interview, Uta von Debschitz explains the genesis of the new Kahn book, how the authors chose the images, and the significance of his work.
