Children´s and picture books

Kate Greenaway

At the beginning of the literature and texts intended for children in the Gutenberg Museum there is a single-sheet print from around 1550: a „Tabula abcdariae“ with alphabets and verses for learning to read and write. One of the most beautiful books for young people, which at the same time were intended to convey education, are the volumes of the „Bilderbuch für Kinder“  (Picture Book for Children), published by Friedrich Justin Bertuch from 1790 onwards.

They were decorated with hand-coloured etchings of things worth seeing and knowingfrom all over the world. A very special rarity among the children´s books is (presumably) second edition of the famous "Strwwulpeter" by Heinrich Hoffmann, which appeared in 1844. It is equipped with lithographic reproductions of the drawings originally made by the Frankfurt physician for his own son.

Beautiful picture books by famous illustrators of the 19th and 20th centuries such as Kate Greenaway, Arthur Rackham, Ernst Kreidolf, Liselotte Schwarz and Maurice Sendak show the further development to the present. For all children who come to the museum as visitors, there is a reading corner with a book chest from which you can choose books to leaf through and read.
