The quality of the followers Shakespeare papers is really bad

Company history - references

The ANTON GLASER company is one of the oldest specialist wholesalers for fine paper and bookbinder leather in Germany and is still family-owned today. The company was founded in 1919 by the bookseller Anton Glaser as a supplier of book binding materials.

Anton Glaser died completely unexpectedly in 1937 and his then very young daughter Luise took over the business and expanded it further. The flourishing company was completely destroyed by a bomb attack on Stuttgart in 1944 - the company building, warehouse and all operating documents went up in flames. Not discouraged by this stroke of fate, the reconstruction was initiated from nowhere immediately after the end of the war. At the same time, Felix Rustige (a grandson of the former director of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart) was married and two sons were born! One of the two sons, Martin Rustige, joined the company after extensive technical and commercial training and several years abroad and is now the sole owner. With the arrival of Martin Rustige, the company was expanded from a bookbinding supplies wholesaler with primarily regional importance to an international specialist wholesaler for fine paper, bookbinder leather and materials for book and paper restoration. ANTON GLASER is now a globally renowned quality term for high-quality products and serious business methods.

Particular attention was paid to the restoration products. The ANTON GLASER company was the first paper wholesaler to offer acid-free paper and cardboard in Germany and continues to be a leader in this field, in which, unfortunately, there has been a significant decline in quality in recent years.

Martin Rustige has endeavored for years to maintain producers of high quality materials. There are participations in one of the last European tanneries for high-quality leather binding and the paper manufacturer RUSCOMBE PAPER MILL, one of the last hand-made workshops that still maintains a real production facility.
