Scope and Content:
In 1909 von Zulow began producing his Monatshefte, a book of months that appeared continuously until 1915, with each month
comprising seven images plus a cover. Von Zulow initially produced the images as drawings, but in 1912 he began to print
them in linocut, sometimes reproducing earlier designs. These later prints, such as Ziegelhaus (an image from the month of
November), were produced as individual sheets bound in a wrapper. Typical of Von Zulow's decorative style, the Monatshefte
were executed with heavy black lines reminiscent of stained-glass windows.
