300 years of Gräfe und Unzer
In 2022 GU had its 300th birthday. A chronicle consisting of three parts was published to mark the anniversary. As a long-standing partner for prepress, we were able to take on the design of the two printed parts.
The first volume shows the founding and development of the bookstore and publishing house and the eventful history of both branches of the business. Separation, reunification and the best-known representatives and most important publications up to the new beginning after 1945. The second volume is devoted to the period from 1950 to 2022 and shows the development into a brand publishing house. The third volume, which is only available in electronic form, offers an index of all works published by GU. In the chronicle of the publishing house, excitingly narrated, vividly documented and part of German book trade history.
