Hitler's personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann took most photos. They had met in 1919 in Munich, and Hoffmann became the only photographer allowed to take pictures of the dictator.
The book possibly appealed mainly to a younger generation who liked to collect and trade the more than 250 collectable photos. A single photo came with each purchase of a pack of cigarettes. The pictures where then glued into the book. These collectable images were very popular at the time but usually with themes such as animals or plants. Hitler used the cigarette pictures for the first time to promote a political message.
The reprint of this rare book will be welcomed by scholars of the period as an indispensable primary source offering a valuable perspective on the formation and development of Nazi ideology.
