Die Andere Bibliothek (“The Other Library”) was established in 1985 by writer Hans Magnus Enzensberger and book designer Franz Greno. Their idea was to publish one extraordinary book each month – extraordinary both in terms of content and form. It has since become one of the most prestigious European book series.
In late 2010, Die Andere Bibliothek moved from Frankfurt to Berlin and is now edited by Christian Döring. Since July 2012, every issue is commissioned from another book designer, many of them well-known figures like Sabine Golde, Uta Schneider, Friedrich Forssman, Victor Malsy, Erik Spiekermann or Wim Westerveld. Renate Stefan is the executive production editor.
