From our newly started publishing house Business History Publishing comes a biography about Peder Herzog, “The Book Binder Who Built”. Right off the presses and now in stores is a beautiful hard-cover that tells the story of the German bookbinder apprentice who in 1859 came to Sweden and created the country’s largest bookbinding company and laid the foundation for today’s printing industry.
Peder Herzog – The Book Binder Who Began to Build was presented last week at this year’s Gothenburg Book Fair, where the author Per Dahl was interviewed both by TV-channel Axess and at the Research Square. We’ll be posting movies from both events shortly.
The richly illustrated book is designed to reflect Herzog’s own creations. Design på Patrick Sundström and print by Livonia Print in Riga, Latvia.
