Illustrations from Der Orchideengarten, the World's First Fantasy Magazine

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. Amazing work, thanks again for posting these.

    It fascinates me how different these are in style and content to the later American magazines. Much as I love Weird Tales, it seems rather juvenile by comparison.

  2. Exactly, John.

    The American magazines you mention do look very juvenile and repetitive by comparison.

  3. Ah!
    I am so glad you have scanned these onto the interwebs. These are artistic treasures now made available to all! Many thanks.
