"Fliegende Blätter", often described as a humourous-satirical weekly, was published from 1844 to 1944 by Braun & Schneider. The individual issues appeared weekly. Throughout its history the magazine had many renowned contributors, including Wilhelm Busch, Gustav Adolf Closs, Hans Kaufmann, Adolf Oberländer, Franz Graf von Pocci, Moritz von Schwind and Carl Spitzweg and is often noted for its typographic and artistic quality.
