Wirtschaftswunder

So after wandering around SoHo all day, the most interesting thing we saw was this photography book at Taschen called Wirtschaftswunder or "Economic Miracle". A complete insiders view to the cultural practices of Post-World War II reconstructed Germany, I especially love the beetle! Have never seen such a large collection of photographs quite like these before...
Check it out!
Cheers from NYC

(Note I'm not on my computer so can't quite figure out how to shrink the photos so they've come out a little squished to fit! Check the website for a better view!)

I love old beetles. My mom had one of the originals when she was young and always talks about them with great memories. Plus, they're adorable.
