Binette Schroeder Collection

Celebrated artist Binette Schroeder assembled a collection of nearly 5,000 artistically valuable picture books from all over the world, most published from 1960 on, but some historical picture books as well. In 2005, Schroeder, a Munich resident, permanently lent her entire collection to the International Youth Library.

The collection is part of the permanent exhibition on Binette Schroeder’s work and is on display in the “treasure room” of the International Youth Library. It can be accessed on the webOPAC online catalogue under the heading “BSI/*.” As with all of the book holdings of the International Youth Library, these books can be viewed in the reading room.
