Yes, I never tried to make a section because they are too large to scan and photos might be strange, even though it would be interesting.

I have a few calendars and have posted some photos in the Gallery in the past

If you want to make a new "Calendar" Forums thread of the covers, that would be neat. You have more than me to make a good start to a thread.

Here are a few covers I have posted:

This watercolor painting from the German graphic artist Ernst van Husen was made for an advertising brochure from ARAL.
This is the original painting ! It came up for sale with some more submissions for this brochure some years ago, unfortunately I didn't buy more of them Crying or Very sad

Ernst van Husen has designed some brochures directly for VW too, but he is not as well-known as the famous Bernd Reuters.
He also made some very nice watercolor paintings for the booklet "Die kleine Reise"

I can confirm I own one of those editions with each second page in blue as well, and I'm also convinced it's no fake...

Mine is marked as "first edition". So i have to keep two different first editions and one second edition...

Kind regards, Tom


Thanks for your comment Tom! I really like the “blue edition”. It’s really nice and I think it’s printed in less numbers then the “black edition”. Best regards, Patrick

I have no doubt about it being original or not, but has anyone seen this before??
For comparison I have photographed the two brochures side by side.....


Do both brochure have swastika printed on them?

I like Porsche's Auto Union racer in the last drawings.

Rear engine, swing axles, trailing arms...

But despite weighing about the same as the Bug, it Had 500hp, not 25!
If you floored it at 100mph you spun/smoked the rear tires!
