Networks of publishers, printers, typographers and designers, who were part of the major changes in the Hebrew culture over the first half of the 20th century.

Dr. Gil Weissblei is an archivist and researcher of the history of the Hebrew book in the 20th century. His doctoral thesis, “The Revival of Hebrew Book Art in Weimar Germany”, was written under the supervision of Prof. Richard I. Cohen of the Hebrew university of Jerusalem.

In his present project, Weissblei focuses on the physical aspects of the Hebrew book as part of a more general cultural phenomenon. His main interest is in the net of publishers, printers, typographers and designers, who were part of the major changes in the Hebrew culture over the first half of the 20th century.
