Cutting-edge Books

Founded in Berlin in 1995, Gestalten is best known for their more than 500 books that document and anticipate vital movements in design, illustration, architecture, and typography as well as urban and contemporary art. They generate the topics for the vast majority of the books that they publish themselves and compile, edit, and design each publication to be both inspirational and user-oriented. Gestalten specializes in developing content for aficionados of cutting-edge visual culture worldwide. For them, visual culture is the output resulting from the interrelationship of design, art, architecture, photography, and other visual disciplines with each other as well as other areas such as popular culture and music. In drawing from a variety of influences and combining them in ways not yet seen before, this work is pushing contemporary creative expression to new frontiers. Always working directly with talented contemporary designers and artists, they bring a deep understanding of visual culture on a global level to whatever they do and remain firmly committed to presenting visual trends with timeless substance.
