Arnold Fanck (1889-1974) was a German pioneer of mountain films. His book The Fight with the Mountain is a report about the making of Fanck's successful 1926 film "Der Heilige Berg" (The Holy/Sacred Mountain). The book was published as part of a series of photo books.

The book designer was Paul Stadlinger, whose career seems to have proved compatible with the new regime, too – with books like "Nürnberg 1933" about the "Reichsparteitag" (Nuremberg Rally).
