This marvellous publication (2 volumes) traces the early 20th-century history of the German Insel publishing house. Insel earned its renown by turning book production into an art form as it printed the works of classic authors and gave a new generation of writers, such as Rainer Maria Rilke, their start. The editor, Brinks, reveals Insel’s high aesthetic standards through sumptuous illustrations of its work.
First voluminous volume with texts, many illustrations (some with foldouts), second volume is a portfolio containing 12 facsimile resolution papers and 8 folder reproductions in their original format.
