'Beyond the Wall – Art and Artifacts from the GDR': The 900-page Book with East German Design

The 900-page coffee table book "Beyond the Wall: Art and Artifacts from the GDR" by Justinian Jampol and published by Taschen, features over 2500 items from the the Wende Museum's East German Collection.

This encyclopedic volume features over 2500 items from its extraordinary collections. Never before has a book included this full a spectrum of art, archives, and artifacts from socialist East Germany: official symbols and dissident expressions, the spectacular and the routine, the mass-produced and the handmade, the funny and the tragic. Packaged in a slick, portable box, the book also comes with a facsimile of a GDR family scrapbook, documenting real and imagined travels both within East Germany, and across the border.

You can order the book on Amazon here.
