Our publishing house

The days when religious prints and theological writings were published at Friedrichstraße 9 in Munich under the management of the publishing house's founder, Josef Müller, are long gone. Today, the publishing house, which was founded in 1896, has an unmistakable presence thanks to its three pillars children's books, gift books, albums and calendars. Since 2000, arsEdition has been part of the Swedish Bonnier Group. The company is managed by the managing directors Dagmar Becker-Göthel and Rebecca Roscher.

Our programm

Our range is as exciting as it is diverse:

Modern products with innovative features, in particularly valuable and stable quality are characteristic of the popularity of our cardboard picture books with successful series such as "Hör mal rein".

Our timeless and artistically designed picture books are classics for every child's room.

Our children's literature offers the right book for every child: first-time readers to advanced readers will find stories with suspense, action, fantasy and humor.

The children's activity section offers high-quality join-in books from educationally valuable to playfully creative for stickers, puzzles and coloring.

Books that arouse curiosity and are fun are at home in the children's non-fiction program. They are characterized by original and exciting topics.

With enchanted by arsEdition, arsEdition is taking its first steps into the young adult genre in 2024. All information about this new series can be found at @enchanted_by_arsedition on Instagram!
