Book Covers of the Wiener Werkstätte

When the Wiener Werkstätte was founded in May 1903, its associates already decided that book covers were to be an integral part of its (leather) production. In many cases, the design of the cover provides information about the content of the book, sometimes in a wonderfully encrypted way. The exhibition, which is mostly based on items that are on loan from the collections Ernst Ploil und Richard Grubman, is completed with holdings from the MAK as well as design drawings and leather stamps from the archives of the Wiener Werkstätte.
