Die Freiheit fällt nicht vom Himmel (Freedom doesn’t fall from the Sky) is an amazing collection of newspapers, magazines, flyers, drawings, posters and other ephemera from the Spanish Civil War. About 300 full color images illustrate the book, the vast majority are of material that is rarely seen or reproduced. There is also significant context given for each object, discussing the anarchist, socialist and communist publications and groups active in Spain in the 1930s. Unfortunately the text is entirely in German, but the pictures are what makes this such a treasure. A must have for any Spanish Civil War collector, or anyone interested in the intersection of European avant-garde design and radical politics. This is a real gem of a book.
Note: the covers of our remaining editions of this book have some slight wear and abrasion.
