Since founding the Kaldewey Press in rural
Poestenkill, NY, in 1985, Gunnar A. Kaldewey has
produced exactly seventy-five artist books in limited
editions, some of them written and designed by
Kaldewey himself. While few small presses have
managed to produce such a large body of work, the
Kaldewey Press has earned the reputation as one
of the world’s finest publishers of contemporary
artist books. In this abundantly illustrated catalogue
raisonné, collector and Kaldewey devotée Clemens
von Lucius presents in detail all seventy-five books
published to date, accompanied by individual
descriptions of each title, an introductory essay
describing the design process, and an interview
with the publisher himself.

including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New
York and Galerie Yvon Lambert in Paris

• Features books published in cooperation with artists
such as Mischa Kuball, Jonathan Lasker, Heribert C.
Ottersbach, Richard Tuttle, and Hans Peter Willberg

materials, including sandpaper, aluminum, plastic,
vellum, clay, tree bark, American Indian beadwork,
