Followed by picture books, religious books and natural science books. The Company flourished and from 1840 they issued children’s books also. In the early 1900’s they issued paper cut out models for planes, dolls, boats and cars. In 1939 they issued the KdF Wagen in red and blue color. The Company still exists and mainly produces children’s books as  Esslinger Verlag J. F. Schreiber GmbH.
