PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Art Book Publisher

The Kerber Verlag is an internationally oriented art book publisher with its own in-house production. We have been publishing books on contemporary and modern art and photography as well as on art and cultural history since 1985. At our headquarters in Bielefeld and our publishing house office with showroom in Berlin, sophisticated monographs and exhibition catalogues are created in close collaboration with artists, photographers, museums, foundations, galleries, collectors, and designers. High-quality artists’ books and collectors’ editions with both artists of international renown and young emerging artists are an established part of our commitment.

As a result of our in-house production, we possess sophisticated technical knowhow and many years of experience in realizing individually designed publications. Our new titles are presented at numerous book and art fairs, in social media, our bilingual publishing house preview, and at additional targeted events. Our global distribution network makes it possible to obtain our books in all well-stocked bookshops—in over forty countries—and naturally everywhere in digital commerce.
