The catalog with 206 pages and 160 color images, over 100 of them full-page, contains also an chronolgy of Leipzig University and 13 short essays.

The catalog in German is on sale for EUR 24,80 (EUR 20 for visitors of the exhibition); the American edition will be out in late August for 40 USD. The catalog is exclusively available in New York at the Grolier Club, and in Houston at the main building of the Houston Public Library.
