Description

Founded on 1 September 1945 by the illustrator and publisher Emile Probst, the Revue Letzeburger Illustre'ert was initially published in A5 format under the direction of Hubert Féjean and printed by Bourg-Bourger. 

The Revue is a family publication that is read by everyone, and succeeds in building a loyal readership by providing local, national and international news, practical advice and entertainment.

Since 1947, subscribers received their issues via a large network of local distributors. In the same year, the weekly offered its subscribers a monthly lottery, Glécks-police, as well as accident insurance and funeral benefits.

From the outset, the Revue hired well-known journalists, authors, artists and photographers. The visual aspect of the magazine played an essential role in its marketing strategy. Photographers such as Pol Aschman, Tony Krier, Jean Weyrich and Jochen Herling published photo reports and illustrated articles by well-known Luxembourg authors such as Nic Weber, Michel Raus, Rolph Ketter or Evy Friedrich. The cover was printed in color only on public holidays, before it became the default in 1957.

Comic strips also played a major role in the Revue. They made their first appearance in 1949 with Bim et Jopi by Pe’l Schlechter. This was followed by Edelmut und Roselinde, Die Burggespenster and Mil's Abenteuer by Gab Weis. In 1987, Lucien Czuga and Roger Leiner published Superjhemp for the first time and Carlo Schneider's cartoons continue to appear to this day.
