|Since founding the Kaldewey Press in rural Poestenkill, NY, in 1985, Gunnar A. Kaldewey has produced exactly seventy-five artist books in limited editions, some of them written and designed by Kaldewey himself. While few small presses have managed to produce such a large body of work, the Kaldewey Press has earned the reputation as one of the world's finest publishers of contemporary artist books. Exquisite volumes have been exhibited worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and Galerie Yvon Lambert in Paris.
In this abundantly illustrated catalogue raisonne, collector and Kaldewey devotee Clemens von Lucius presents in detail all seventy-five books published to-date including books published in cooperation with artists such as Mischa Kuball, Jonathan Lasker, Heribert C. Ottersbach, Richard Tuttle, and Hans Peter Willberg. 75 Artist Books includes an introductory essay describing the design process and an interview with the publisher himself.
