Schmitz-Emans (ed.): Literatur, Buchgestaltung und Buchkunst

Monika Schmitz-Emans, former member of the ICLA theory committee, has edited Literatur, Buchgestaltung und Buchkunst (Literature, Book Design, and Book Art), a De Gruyter handbook of more than a thousand pages devoted to the literary and visual dimensions of book design. Questions of the book as materiality, image, and writing are explored alongside numerous analyses of forms as diverse as the atlas, the book of beasts, the encyclopedia, the children’s book, the picture book, and the artist’s book.
