"Style and the Family Tunes", a magazine that has firstly been published in 1994, shaped the nineteen-nineties and the first decade of the twenty-first century with a blend of fashion, art, and subculture. The visual language of the magazine in particular was innovative and aesthetically appealing, and received numerous awards, the best visual lead magazine in Germany and various Art Directors Club medals among them.
A large number of what were later to become well-known photographers contributed to the magazine, including Daniel Josefsohn and Joachim Baldauf, who also use Leica cameras in their work. International stars such as Dimitri Daniloff, and Giampaolo Sgura appreciated the creative freedom they were afforded.
For 17 years in 130 issues, Cathy Boom and the Style staff proved that one could be unconventional, visionary, and successful. Since 2011 the project has continued in the Internet as stylemag.net. With the book Hatje Cantz presents a best of the cult magazine produced in Berlin but sold as far away as Tokyo.
