Illustrated book “House of Europe. European Artifacts at the German National Library”
On the occasion of Germany’s presidency of the Council of the European Union during the second half of 2020, the German National Library published an illustrated book with the title “House of Europe. European Artifacts at the German National Library”. With 183 stories in pictures from the collection – one for each day of Germany’s presidency. The German National Library circle of friends, Gesellschaft für das Buch made a generous contribution to the funding for the publication, which can also be accessed digitally.
