The books from the Kaldewey Press are important documents of contemporary bookmaking that have been featured in exhibitions all over the world. Since the 1985 founding of his handpress, which Gunnar A. Kaldewey set up in Poestenkill, in upstate New York, over sixty unique artist books have been produced in cooperation with artists such as Jonathan Lasker, Mischa Kuball, or Richard Tuttle. Among the authors are famous names such as Samuel Beckett, Paul Celan, Marguerite Duras, and James Joyce. Published in small limited editions, the books are produced according to the highest level of craftsmanship. Kaldewey does the typesetting and prints the books, sometimes making the paper himself, too. The bookbinding is done by renowned workshops such as Christian Zwang's in Hamburg, or Jean de Gonet's in Paris. This bibliophilic book is a catalogue raisonné of the books published to date by the press - a must for those who love Kaldewey's art, as well as all friends and collectors of beautiful books. Exhibition schedule: Chapin Library of Williams College, Williamstown, MA, January-June 2006 · Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, MA, March-June 2006 · Mass Moca, North Adams, June 2006-January 2007
