Doomed Paradise

One of the 25 Most Beautiful German Books


The “25 Most Beautiful German Books of 2020” have been chosen and we are thrilled that Scheidegger & Spiess is represented with Jürg Düblin’s historical study In Stalins Reich. Die Moskauer Jahre des Architekten und Städteplaners Hans Schmidt 1930–1937, designed by Beat Keusch and Anna Klokow / BKVK, Basel. The Jury’s verdict: “Does this book feel surprisingly recent because of the timeless validity of classical modernism? Or is it an accomplishment of skillful design – exceeding its pure function, like a visual language – to communicate meaning through form?”
