A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions



Meisterwerke der angewandten Kunst aus dem Deutschen Ledermuseum Offenbach
Human enjoyment of aesthetically pleasing objects is thousands of years old and has constantly changed, both technically and stylistically. Leather, a robust, mouldable and adaptable material lent itself perfectly to be cut and punched, gilded and painted. Emperors, kings and church dignitaries had valuable objects made from leather, and even today, designer articles created from the tanned skin of cows, sheep and fish like skate are accompanied by a touch of luxury.
The illustrated book Lederlust: Leather Pleasure presents a selection of exquisite works from the world of leather in exquisite close up and detailed photographs: from six millennia and five continents, masterpieces from the tradition of European applied arts.
