There is a long tradition to Ullstein’s yearbook. The publishing house’s 2013 version is the 55th edition of the series.
Once more, the firm’s editorial team brilliantly summarised the year’s most important events. By doing so, they were able to rely to the power of photography. “Das Jahr im Bild 2013” also features short articles about what happened last year in the world. However, its large collection of photos is what attracts customers year after year.
This time around, the book includes images documenting the flood in Germany as well as the federal elections in the country. There are nice pictures showing the immense number of election campaign posters on city streets. Furthermore, “Das Jahr im Bild 2013” features photographic documentation of the night when Jorge Mario Bergoglio was named new Pope.
As far as sport is regarded, the most important developments took place in football. Bayern Munich’s impeccable season is, little surprising, the main subject of the book’s sports section. The team – managed by Jupp Heynckes last season – not only won the German Bundesliga, they also triumphed in the DFB Cup and in the Champions League. Borussia Dortmund, FC Barcelona and Europe’s other top clubs had to accept the Bavarian squad’s dominance.
Society and culture news are not ignored either by Ullstein’s release. The book includes pictures of baby Prince George, important exhibitions and theatre plays.
