In 2014, as part of the exhibition Entgrenzt at the Klingspor Museum Offenbach, a catalog of all Veronika Schäpers’ books created up to that time was published, containing a total of 29 editions. Another nine books have been added since 2014, as described in a hand-bound catalog, a text booklet, and two separate publications. Everything is stored together in one box, which also has space for future additional catalogs, booklets, and ephemera.
 
The box is made of light gray archival corrugated cardboard from Klug Conservations with a title silkscreened in either
dark blue or white. Two removable inserts, each 6 mm thick, offer the possibility of adding further publications in the
future.
