  • “…a political statement… A book’s cover isn’t just inseparable from a book’s contents, it’s of a piece with the spirit of its age.”

    — The Daily Beast, New York
  • “If you think Berlin is cool now then boy oh boy you should have been there between 1919 and 1933. The embarrassment of hedonistic riches that were the Weimar Republic would knock today’s moccachino’d up metropolis into a cocked hat.”

    — Propermag.com
  • „Ein Werk, das zu den erstaunlichsten gehört, die mir je in meinem Bücherleben begegnet sind.“

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

    — The Times Literary Supplement, London
  • “…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, London
  • «…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, mais, et ce n’est pas le moindre de ses mérites, fournira une documentation exceptionnelle pour tous ceux qui s’intéressent à cette période de l’histoire de l’Allemagne précédant l’arrivée du nazisme. Il est dans sa sphère encyclopédique, et le nombre de thèmes abordés est impressionnant… Difficile d’être exhaustif sur un tel livre, tant il est riche, une somme, comme je l’écrivais en préambule, un travail de compilation et d’analyse admirable.»

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

    — AIGA.com, New York
  • “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, New York
