Daring content

Latin: Simplicissimus
English translation: Very easy

Simplicissimus was a German satirical journal that featured cartoons which often criticized the conservative establishment. The Nazi Party was especially contentious of the magazine's content; in 1933, stormtroopers paid a visit to their business office to instruct anti-Hitler cartoons were forbidden. The magazine ceased publication in 1944. History and politics aside,
the colors and graphics are notable for their striking modernity.
