Gunnar A. Kaldewey began his career on the other side of the counter, operating a rare bookselling firm that specialized in 18th-century German and French literature. In 1985, he moved to the United States, where he established his press. Then followed an incredible streak of stateside exhibitions, the first of which took place at Bromer Booksellers in 1986. Subsequent venues have included The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Getty Center, Harvard University, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Throughout his career, Kaldewey has been a prolific collaborator, and his catalogue boasts an impressive lineup of eminent Modernist and Postmodernist artists, including Richard Tuttle, Jonathan Lasker, John Broaddus, Not Vital, and Kim Keever.
