Iconography Collection

Iconography Collection

The National Library holds a considerable collection of illustrated art books, books for collectors, picture books, portraits, engravings and prints, many of which are unique items. The collection includes 233 illustrated art books by Luxembourgish artists and about 1,300 works by international artists. Among them are illustrated volumes of poetry, object-books, concept books and books that were drawn, engraved and typeset by a single artist.

In addition, there are around 3,200 documents relating to iconography and around 2,800 Luxembourgish prints.


Documents in this collection are not available for home loan. However, you can view them in our Dr Jean-Claude Loutsch Rare Books Reading Room on the 1st floor. A member of staff will guide you in the proper handling of these precious documents.

Part of the collection is referenced in a-z.lu and can be pre-ordered online or by written request.
