About Us

We care passionately about art. Our unrelenting commitment demonstrates that it is possible to produce great books even in a city like Dortmund, which is best known for soccer and beer. At our offices close to the Dortmunder U cultural center and not far from our own print shop, we link ambitious publishing with technological excellence. These two sides of Kettler’s activity dovetail perfectly as our project partners benefit from this dual expertise.

With our focus on art, photography, architecture, and commercial design, we are always on the lookout for interesting and extraordinary projects. We cooperate with museums and exhibition venues and explore different topics and forms of presentation in collaboration with authors, artists, and curators. Together with our graphic designers, editors, translators, and lithographers, we assist our project partners during all stages of the book production process while also managing marketing and sales. And after work, you might catch us having a chat over a beer at the Bergmann Kiosk bar next door.

General Manager

What is the general manager's role at Verlag Kettler?

Oversee all business operations, motivate and lead, focus on the bigger picture, take risks and foster innovation, monitor quality and costs, tear his hair out when staff and project partners blow the budget yet again – before ultimately being satisfied once the job is completed successfully.

Lea Szramek
Managing Editor

What is the role of a managing editor at Verlag Kettler?

Listen to artists, graphic designers, and project partners, develop ideas, search for and find papers, feel and discover the texture of book cover materials, plan, coordinate, monitor, and marvel at the printing process and the approval of the final prints, work together with the bookbinders to create a perfect product; but above all, be constantly on the phone and communicate with all those involved in a given project to find the ideal solution.
