Klingspor Museum Offenbach for International Book Art, Typography and Calligraphy

The southern wing of a luxuriousold Büsing palace in Offenbach (Büsing-Palais) houses the Klingspor Museum for International Book Art,Typography and Calligraphy. The exhibition area was founded in 1953. Justthen it was decided to create a museum on the basis of an impressive collectionof Karl Klingspor, a patron and honorary citizen of Offenbach. He collected originalsamples of the German graphic design of the first half of the twentiethcentury. At that time, he and his brother held a letter foundry in the city,where the printing fonts were developed by the well-known German artists.

The pearl of the Klingspor Museum is a collection of100 books in full leather bindings. It also contains the most extensive collectionof works of the Dutch graphic artist and typographer Hendrik Nicolass Werkman, anavant-gardist and creator of the fashion magazine Next Call. The museum oftenholds exhibitions where you can see contemporary works by European masters of graphicart and calligraphy. There is also an interesting historic room in the museum,dedicated to the development of book-printing in the city from the Middle Agesto the present day. The local printers were of such a great renown, that evenWolfgang Amadeus Mozart regularly visited Offenbach to publish his music text.
