A  German proverb says, " Alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei." (Everything has an end, only the sausage has two.)

Translation: We are winding down our acquisitions and will only consider purchasing or winning at auction especially one-of-a-kind, "once in a lifetime" type German Film treasures which enhance our large Collection. Our collecting days are basically now over.  It has come time to consolidate. We have sold off most of our duplicate items although you will find a few posters  and rare film ephemera for sale in our Store.

New acquisitions of importance shall be added to this page as the year unfolds......  and we will continue well into the future adding new pages and images and themes to this website and keep it as current as possible.

Thank you for visiting, and returning,  to this website.

The first new acquisition this year was actually won at auction in November 2022 but arrived on 9 January. It is a facsimile (not original) complete press-book for the Harlan film JUD Süß.  There is no indication printed on it as to who produced it. The 28 page booklet is printed on burnt orange paper throughout, so it is hard to read and even harder to scan properly.  Below is the cover in the burnt orange paper used:

Here are some sample pages we have colour-corrected/adjusted:

Considering the major Jud Süß poster collection as well as  the extensive ephemera we have collected on this film over the decades, the press-book, even if only the facsimile, is a welcome addition and without doubt the final Jud Süß item we shall ever find.
