Steidl Book Culture, 2006–2020 comprises all the visual books printed and published by Steidl over the last 15 years—around 1,000 titles in total. This unprecedented collection, including many books otherwise out of print, is a rare opportunity to possess a piece of recent bookmaking history, and features works by some of the most renowned practitioners of the medium, including Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Karl Lagerfeld, Dayanita Singh, Joel Sternfeld and Juergen Teller, and seminal visual artists such as Jim Dine, Roni Horn and Ed Ruscha.
Steidl Book Culture, 2006–2020 is a visual and tactile workshop in the craft of Steidl books: how design, typography, paper, and printing and binding methods are always individualized to realize the photographer’s particular vision as a “multiple”—an enduring democratic art object at a reasonable price. Delivered with an illustrated inventory of all books and a certificate of authenticity signed by Gerhard Steidl, this compendium of only 50 sets is conceived as a site-specific installation within libraries, schools and universities, as well as for individuals to foster their personal book-collecting traditions. In Steidl’s no-nonsense words: “This is how we make books. This is Steidl book culture.”
