The Gutenberg Jahrbuch 2022, edited by Stephan Füssel (Mainz), typesetting and cover design by Ralf de Jong (Essen), was published in June. The Gutenberg Jahrbuch is the central scholarly publication organ of International Gutenberg Society, founded in 1926 by Aloys Ruppel.
With 14 contributions in German, English and French, the new edition is primarily devoted to incunabulum research and includes, among other things, the proceedings of the academic conference in Heidelberg in September 2021 on the topic of “Norm und Abweichung im Buchdruck des 15. Jahrhunderts” (“Norm and Deviation in 15th Century Book Printing”). The volume contains contributions on the topics the creation of the title page in French incunabula, illustrated Almanacs and a found print from the press of Aldus Manutius in the Oldenburg State Library.
This is also the last volume of the Gutenberg Jahrbuch to be edited by Stephan Füssel, who edited the Jahrbuch since 1994. In his introduction, he offers a brief review of the last almost three decades.
The volume is distributed to members of the society and also sold via the publisher, Harrassowitz (Wiesbaden). More information can be found on the publisher’s website.
