10 Years of the Natural History Imprint (Naturkunden)

Literaturhaus Basel

The series of books published under the ´Naturkunden´ imprint includes books about animals and plants, mushrooms and people, landscapes, rocks and stones, celestial bodies and animate and inanimate nature. These are not dry academic books, but a passionate exploration of our world: informative and clear, “with sumptuous taste and intelligence” (Die Zeit). The elaborate, elegant and individual design of each book is a major factor in the great success of this unique series. Judith Schalansky offers an insight into this series of books, which she co-founded. “In this series, we really do encounter and explore the ultimate questions.” (Denis Scheck)
