The whole world of design in high-quality, and excellently designed books - that is what our Red Dot publishing house is about. For over twenty years, we have been publishing books on design and lifestyle. To date, more than 150 titles have appeared. Among our most important publications are the Design Yearbooks. These appear annually as a large format coffee table books and collectors’ items, offering a unique overview of the state of the art in each of the categories of product design, communications design and design concepts. Some of these books consist of several volumes, each presenting the best current products, projects and concepts and thus offering professionals, as well as laymen interested in design a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and design trends.
In addition, Red Dot Edition publishes reference works and Who’s Who compendia which help you find your way through German and international design scenes, presenting their most important protagonists. We also publish our annual bestseller, the Design Diary. Furthermore, we repeatedly issue design books in the form of monographs, in other words design books in which we shine a light on various design-realated topics from a fascinating angle, for instance The Design World or The Language of Fashion and Design.

Among these are, for instance, perhaps the charming cookery books: Komm Du mir nach Hause (Come to my Home) or The Art of Burger.
