How to Make a Book with Steidl. 2010. Germany. Directed by Gereon Wetzel, Jörg Adolph

Co-directed by Gereon Wetzel, celebrated in New York for his long-running film El Bulli–Cooking in Progress, this lively and revealing documentary captures the energy and passion of Gerhard Steidl, the German publisher of Günter Grass’s The Tin Drum, Robert Frank’s The Americans, and many excellent artists’ books. The film follows the production of Joel Sternfeld’s iDubai photo book, and also features appearances by Ed Ruscha, Jeff Wall, and Robert Adams, among others.
