I love the illustrations and front covers of Art Deco magazines and these German books of sheet music are no exception. There are 3 "Zu Tee und Tanz" books & 1 "1000 Takte Tanz" book. All 4 have fantastic illustrated front and back covers by Willy Herzig and are signed accordingly. The pictures on the site show the front & back covers of each book.
