The exhibition in the Heidelberg University Library is dedicated to a reform movement in book production and design that took place in Europe and the USA in the early 20th century. As a reaction to the industrial mass production of books, so-called private presses were created in Germany between 1900 and 1930. These printing workshops had high aesthetic and qualitative demands with regard to the typography and layout of the book. In addition to a guided tour through the exhibition, we have the unique opportunity to view originals.
