Birkhser to Launch Over 300 e-Books in Architecture, Design, and

Basel, 23 August 2012. At the end of September the publishing house
Birkhser will launch one of the largest collections of e-books in the
fields of architecture, design, and landscaping. With over 300 titles the
e-book collection represents a large majority of Birkhser's publications
since 2005. Many of these e-books are beautifully illustrated, and the
collection features numerous standard works such as the Entwurfsatlas
Schulen und Kindergten (Design Atlas for Schools and Kindergartens), Licht
f Stte (Light for Cities), and Syntax der Landschaft (Syntax of the
Landscape). The collection also contains architectural monographs such as
Bothe Richter Teherani, Christoph Mkler, and Ortner & Ortner.

"As architects and designers regularly work with digital tools, it.s only
natural that sources of information for their work should be offered
digitally," said Alexander Grossman, Vice President of Publishing.
"Birkhser acquired rights for the digital publication of texts and images
at an early stage; we are now looking forward to actual distribution."

Birkhser's e-books will be distributed through De Gruyter Online, as well
as through direct sales and De Gruyter's retail channels. Birkhser's
e-books are fully searchable online. There are also a number of purchase
options; customers can buy individual titles or the entire collection as a
complete package.

In the fields of architecture, design, and landscaping, the release of
digital content has been slow in coming. This is largely because of legal
questions related to content ownership. The 300 titles being released in
September represent works to which Birkhser has digital distribution

"We're convinced that an appealing collection of titles in the fields of
design and architecture is a necessity," Grossman added. "The large demand
from libraries and end customers has strengthened our intentions of
offering e-books for all coming titles to which we possess the necessary
