Spectrum (book series)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Volk und Welt Spectrum is the title of a series of books published by Volk und Welt Berlin from 1968 to 1993 .


The titles of the series are mostly stories, short novels , novellas and powesti by well-known authors, but also compilations, film scenarios and poems. For the publisher, spectrum was an opportunity to explore the limits of what was currently allowed in the GDR ; Thus, following the advocacy of Franz Fühmann, the very first text by Sigmund Freud to be printed in the GDR appeared in a spectrum volume in 1982 . Even Günter Grass and James Joyce came here for the first time officially to the readers.

Up to 1989 authors from a total of 36 countries had been published, most of them authors from the Soviet Union (69 volumes). The total print run reached 4,901,900 copies. The length varies from 80 to 130 pages.

On the cover , which is otherwise completely black, the author was on the front cover in the upper quarter in white lettering at the top left, including the title with an explanation of the work next to it (e.g. stories ). At the top right was the VVW publisher's logo as a continuous zigzag and the name “Spektrum” below it. Under this uniform design was an image for the title, also in black, gray and white tones. The motifs come (except for one) from the artist and graphic designer Lothar Reher .

A publisher's program with annotations on the content appeared annually (at least 1972–1982) in the same design and format .

Because of the uniformly designed black dust jacket, it was also called the Black Series . Volumes one to seventeen are not numbered in the first edition.
