Since 2011 the SALZ-Verlag has been publishing various artists books. The main aim of SALZ-Verlag is to publish a collection of books over a long period of time under the project name ‘SALZ-Edition’. Each publication begins with a dummy book, which always starts with the same format and the same amount of pages. Each artist works on their own book and when it is finalised, SALZ-Verlag then reproduce this using Offset printing, staying as close to the original dummy as possible.The book collection ‘MOTTE’ offers an insight into more artists who are working with original graphics, printing techniques and different texts and themes.

The 2013 artists publication ‘mono’presents individual printing techniques. This publication contains seven black and white graphic prints each in printed color envelopes.Aside from the book collections, SALZ-Verlag also work on concepts and themes for individual artist publications.

Books can be viewed and ordered via the website. Interested parties wishing to receive regular information about SALZ-Verlag can subscribe to our newsletter.
