  • “A lavish bilingual survey with over 1,000 illustrations and succinct commentary.”

    — The Times Literary Supplement
  • “…such a visually exciting publication. It is an indispensable record of a dazzlingly rich period, when various avant-garde styles …must have competed for attention in the booksellers’ windows…”

    — World of Interiors
  • «Un exceptionnel, voire unique travail de recherche. Il deviendra, et cela ne fait aucun doute, la référence obligée des amateurs de belles reliures et de bibliophilie. Difficile d’être exhaustif sur un tel livre, tant il est riche. Une somme. Un travail de compilation et d’analyse admirable.»

    — Wukali.fr
  • “…a visually stunning catalogue of Berlin’s nascent book art culture between the world wars.”

    — AIGA.com
  • “Just browsing through the pages can easily transport you into a huge bookstore in early 20th Century Berlin, well-stocked with just about every genre of fiction and non-fiction you can imagine… To enjoy the pleasures and glories of the golden age of the region’s visual — and literary — arts, you can blissfully immerse yourself for hours in The Book Cover in the Weimar Republic.”

    — PRINT Magazine
  • “This is the first accessible critical mass of fiction, non-fiction, art, textbooks and children’s book covers and jackets ever assembled. And although German design magazines covering this fourteen-year period often featured surveys with tip-in originals of jackets, there has never been a thematic historical resource to address the context, contents, and creators of the books through expert voices of publishing and design scholars. What’s more, it is sobering that the work presented in The Book Cover in the Weimar Republic so clearly influenced design between the wars up to and including today.”

    — Steven Heller for Design Observer
  • “…this large volume taps into the Weimar's creative hub and how it established its unique artistic aesthetic.”

    — Interviewmagazine.com
  • “It is almost impossible to do justice to the richness of this selection, which gives us a clear sense of the explosion of energy in publishing during the Weimar period… this book weighs two and half kilos, but every gram is worth it.”

    — The Times Literary Supplement
  • “Una catalogazione e presentazione a dir poco superlativa… che celebra l’ambizione, l’inventiva e la bellezza del libro.”

    — FOTOgraphia
  • “Libro dell’anno, per quanto riguarda lo specifico argomento grafica editoriale. Libro di clamorosa bellezza, omaggio a una storia grafica che concentra alcune tra le cose migliori del Novecento (e anzi molte le predice). Non bastano certo queste poche righe per descrivere la bellezza del monumentale Book Cover in the Weimar Republic. Ma il lavoro di Jürgen Holstein resterà, nel tempo, come un faro per la ricerca e per lo squisito omaggio alla bellezza eterna del libro.”

«C’est un aspect inédit de la République de Weimar qui se dévoile à travers de superbes détails finement observés, réunis dans ce magnifique recueil de créations graphiques au service du livre.»
