The History of Publishing

Siegfried Reinhardt was born in Germany, but spent most of his life and career in St. Louis. Known for his large-scale historical murals, Reinhardt illustrates the history of publishing using imagery including Egyptian hieroglyphs, a medieval Book of Hours, Sumerian figures and an early printing press. The History of Publishing hung in the Rand McNally headquarters in Skokie, Illinois until the company relocated to a new facility in 2008.
