New York, NY - April 3, 2013 - Alive Mind Cinema is proud to announce the DVD release of How to Make a Book With Steidl, a documentary by Gereon Wetzel and Jörg Adolph that examines the art of publisher Gerhard Steidl, who remains committed to the printed book even in the digital age.


How to Make a Book comes to DVD from Alive Mind Cinema on April 9, 2013, with a SRP of $29.95.




In this age of digital media, Gerhard Steidl stands as one of the few remaining publishers to maintain an unwavering commitment to the quality and craftsmanship of the printed book. For more than forty years, Steidl has personally supervised the publishing and printing of some of the most significant books on fashion, art, and photography. 


In How to Make a Book With Steidl, filmmakers Gereon Wetzel and Jörg Adolph observe Steidl as he travels the world to meet and collaborate with such renowned photographers as Joel Sternfeld, Jeff Wall, and Ed Ruscha, working tirelessly to present their work in beautifully created books. Providing an insightful look at the way Steidl's printing press operates in Goettingen, Germany, How to Make a Book also presents Steidl as a dynamic entrepreneur with an uncompromising passion for the craft of bookmaking.
