Fascism and Nazism in Visual Imagery

(p.88) 3 Mockery and Terror
Confronting Fascism in Egypt
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses visual images as expressions of Egyptian commentary on contemporary issues during the interwar era. The illustrated journal was a unique press genre intended to serve as a medium of communication via the use of photographs, illustrations, and caricatures. Generally appearing as a weekly publication, illustrated periodicals began to appear in the cultural consumer market in the late nineteenth century. With the expansion of Egypt's politically aware consumer public under the parliamentary monarchy, it was a genre that developed rapidly and flourished between the two world wars. By the 1930s, against the background of political and economic crisis as well as rapid social and cultural change, the illustrated periodical reached new heights of popularity and circulation.
