Potsdam. Art and Architecture
"Potsdam, designated a World Heritage Site in 1991 for its unique cultural landscape, is a magnificent synthesis of dream and reality. The historical and natural wealth of Potsdam and its surroundings is the subject of this book. Almost half of the book is devoted to the wide-ranging Potsdam cultural landscape with its castles and park grounds. The rest of the coverage is evenly divided between the historical city center together with its development, and the 20th and 21st century architecture. Rolf Toman created a masterpiece with ARS SACRA, his compendium of Christian art. Along with his team of authors he now turns his attention to the art historical epochs in the history of Potsdam. Achim Bednorz has photographed architectural and art historical subjects for more than 20 years. He has acquired a reputation as a specialist for the documentation of sacred buildings. His pictures in all h.f.ullmann books have found worldwide recognition."
