Anna Auer „The Forgotten Letters“ from 1997 is a compilation of 14 letters and 8 original manuscripts with an especially precious document: one page of the 17 pages draft of Joseph Gay-Lussac‘s speech in favor of photography, dated 30 July 1839.
Christian Schad (1894-1982) created his first photograms in Geneva in 1918/1919. His friend, the Austrian writer Walter Serner, who was part of the Zürich Dada movement together with Tristan Tzara, gave them the name “Schadographs”. The book was published (only in German) on the occasion of the retrospective held in Miesbach, Bavaria (the place where Christian Schad was born) in 1999. It has been out of print for several years! The authors are: Arturo Schwarz, L. Fritz Gruber, Bettina Schad, Christian Schad, Nikolaus Schad and Anna Auer.
