Moderne Bauformen, Monatshefte für Architektur und Raumkunst
The best illustrated architecture and interior design magazine available in Germany during the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler was easily the splendid 9-1/4 x 11-1/2 inch MODERNE BAUFORMEN (Modern Building Styles), published by Julius Hoffmann Verlag in Stuttgart. Published by Hoffmann since 1901 the monthly magazine for architects and interior designers averaged around 100 pages per month and dealt with all that was new in the fields of architecture, interior and exterior building design, furniture, decoration, etc. After 1933 MODERNE BAUFORMEN was a principal promoter of Nazi architecture and presented the best of it every month.
Mosaic Hall Reichschancellery
Each issue of MODERNE BAUFORMEN typically featured five or six big, well-illustrated articles about buildings, parts of cities, or works of an architect backed up by strong text and views, plans, details, photographs, etc.   MODERNE BAUFORMEN was intended for an international audience so photographic content was superb with excellent color photos featured in many issues. Issues also contained display advertising for things like books, furniture, construction materials and equipment, paint, mirrors, flooring, appliances, etc.
