The days in which religious graphic reproductions and theological texts were published in Friedrichstraße No. 9 in Munich, under the stewardship of publishing house founder Josef Müller, have long been entered the annals of history. Founded in 1896, the publishing house has now carved out its niche in children, youth and gift books, the pillars of its publishing program. In the summer of 2012, the publishing list was complemented by the Bloomsbury children’s and youth books program and, in January 2013, bloomoon, an imprint for youth literature, was created.
Managing Director Michael Schweins heads the company that has belonged to the Bonnier Group of Sweden since 2000. Around 70 employees undertake inspiring challenges and fill the time honoured publishing house offices with the day-to-day business, with verve and with books where one can see the passion that has gone into them.
