friends of the foundation

Without the Friends of Stiftung Buchkunst, who have been supporting the work of the foundation since 1994, many of our activities would not be possible. Behind the scenes, all of these friends make a vital contribution to enabling Stiftung Buchkunst to move the beautiful book into focus again and again. 

The friends of the foundation include not only important German publishers, but also companies from other sectors of the economy, as well as private individuals committed to the cause of the beautiful book.

The friends of the foundation would like to increase their contributions to Stiftung Buchkunst, especially in light of scarce public funds, and would therefore like to recruit additional members.
