E. A. Seemann Verlag, founded in 1858, publishes non-fiction books on the fine arts, exhibition catalogs and catalogs of works, as well as memo games that put great art on small cards.
The independent publishing group E. A. Seemann Henschel publishes carefully edited and attractively designed books on the visual and performing arts.
The Imprint E. A. Seemann publishes elaborately produced illustrated books about the Bauhaus, Classical Modern Art, and reference books for teaching artistic techniques. The Imprint Henschel stands for illustrated text books, biographies and educational guides on dance, drama, and music.
Since 2015, the traditional Leipzig-based art book publisher has also been offering contemporary art and culture education for children between the ages of 4 and 12 with E. A. SEEMANN’S BILDERBANDE. There are children’s books about the visual arts, dance, classical music and the cultural side of human history to be – the range of topics is as diverse and broad as culture itself.
The new BILDERBANDE publications break with the usual presentation of knowledge in non-fiction books and combine contemporary, always idiosyncratic illustrations with innovative narrative forms. The authors are proven experts in their field and have their children’s target group firmly in mind when writing – this is how well-founded as well as stimulating and exciting books are created that open up the colorful world of art and culture to young readers.
