The Book Cover in the Weimar Republic

During Germany’s Weimar Republic, between the first and second world war, the country was flourishing with new literature, philosophy and art. Alongside this ran a golden age in publishing, producing book covers that reflected the cultural boom.

The Book Cover in the Weimar Republic brings together 1,000 examples from this 14-year period. It covers a range of titles from children books to translated novels; political literature to artist monographs. The book is based on a collection owned antique book dealer Jürgen Holstein.
