"In the short time between 1927 and 1929 more than sixty illustrations for ULK, the Illustrierte Wochenblatt für Humor und Satire , since 1872 published as addition to Rudolf Mosse's liberal paper Berliner Tageblatts , were made. Mostly executed in colors and as full-page or double-page illustrations, the sheets, most of them published on the cover of the magazine, show that Dodo deserves a special place in art history."
