He subsequently worked as a librarian, becoming deputy director of the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenb ttel in 1987, and director of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Bibliothek in Hanover from 2002 to 2016. Ruppelt has published over 400 essays and 40 monographs on the subject of books, library science, and cultural history.

Reviews

"There was a time when extravagant cathedrals were created just to house books and manuscripts. Listri's large-format photographs document European libraries built between the 15th and the 19th century..."
"Listri's meticulous attention to minutiae and details is exquisite. One can practically smell the dust on these ancient books."
