Steidl
Steidl
is a German-language publisher, an international publisher of photobooks, and a printing company, based in Göttingen, Germany.[2] Overview[edit] The company was started by Gerhard Steidl
Steidl
(b. 1950). Gerhard Steidl's impetus for a career in printing came when, as a teenager, one of his photographs was used in a poster advertising a production of Brecht's Mann ist Mann. The printing company did what the boy thought was a poor job; he suggested printing the sheet twice, the company agreed to do so in order to get rid of him, and his idea worked fairly well.[3] The company's first book was Befragung der Documenta
Documenta
(1972).[3]From 1974, [Gerhard] Steidl
Steidl
added political non-fiction to his program. In the early 1980s, he expanded into literature and selected art and photography books, and in 1989, he published his first paperback editions
