A really small selection ...
Gifts for musicians. This first page of the shop – and that is true only for the lower part of this page below this headline – is just created for those internet surfers and visitors of our shop, who already had fun reading on the "Bach on Bach" website. Or with another website of the "Bach On Bach" project. As this lower part of this page does definitely not come "to the point" soon. And that is also true for the coming paragraphs. As this is the section for you, just to browse a little and to poke around. With much time to read: That is to say just to kill time. Just to learn more and more about gifts for musicians and more gifts for musicians, which we found for you. Or about gifts for musicians, which we created for you. Or about gifts for musicians, which we wrote for you, put together for you or just "invented" them. With our sense of entertainment. With the way of husband writing text and with his hullabaloos. And you already realize it: I as well do not get "to the point". However: You just don't read here, because you are "streamlined" checking on the internet for quick gifts for musicians. You are probably here, just because you have fun reading.
Somehow already now here is the place with the most gifts related to the subject of Johann Sebastian Bach. However, maybe just indirectly, because from here you get t Zazzle too, better to our Zazzle Shop. And everything, what you find at Zazzle you can order from our shop too. After that we just add everything related to Bach, what you can't buy at Zazzle. Now after that our "mission is accomplished": This is the portal with the most gifts for musicians related to the Court Composer from Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany. What Zazzle is? Zazzle is an internet portal offering "individual gifts". We have a cooperation. And for that reason we can offer you many, really many, many very exciting gifts for musicians: Bach on t-shirts, Bach on mouse pads, Bach on coffee mugs and Bach on watches. Just: gifts for musicians, nothing but gifts for musicians. All gifts are designed with artwork from our publishing house: Bach actually in unbelievable many varieties. And "just in case": If you find a store which offers more gifts for musicians... - that is to say more gifts for musicians related to the subject of Bach ... than please do us a favor and tell us.
The most extended Bach biography for children, the shortest Bach biography for children (... the Bach coloring book) and a cute, cool and exciting book "Letters of children to Johann Sebastian Bach". However, there wiil be no translation for such a jewel ever. So sorry.
Bach gifts and more Bach gifts: How could I start this chapter different, than with the first book in my publishing house sortiment. The book about Johann Sebastian Bach is written by my husband and the illustrations are painted by his sister Petra-Ines Kaune.
Bach gifts. You are perfect here in any aspect. Firstly here you will find books. With one exception it's all about new books. Just the "Little Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach" is so much worth reading, that we offer this little exception to the rule: A preowned book in at least good condition.
So, we get to the second category: It's our own books our own Renate Bach Publishing House. These are books, which my husband wrote and "invented" and I made these ideas and scripts a book afterwards. With my layout, my addition of illustrations and the mix with photos and paintings they are actually the perfect gift, as all books are started to be a gifts later on. From the beginning. Of course, we dearly love our "Biography for Children", the cute story around Bach's life, narrated by the little cherub Balthazar and supported with music by his BFF, Veit. It is a pedagogical gift, however you don't realize that purpose. Of course Veit doesn't accompany the paper book in a musical way. This is what he does in a different gift category, which is the audio book. But we want to tell you more about that later. A biography for teens is the next project, a book about Bach postage stamps is planned, however this will be a gift then only. And there are more titles and ideas.
A third category of books is our personal recommendation. 53.000 publications are there linked to the theme of Bach, of course not all are good as a gift, as essay, newspaper articles and graduate thesises are included in this number - plus books. So, the Books about Bach are biographies, novels, stories, short biographies and historic biographies, too. In every section of these we have decided for a favorite book. So, these are not the best in each category, but those which we like best. So it's our opinion, it's not an objective judgement. So I present you on separate page our "favorites" ... and they are perfect as a gift, of course. The sections? Biographies, Fiction, historic biographies, coloring books (... with a smile), Bach books for kids, unusual theme biographies and tourist information for travelling in the matter of Bach.
Finally, there is a forth category in my shop. And that is preferably all books, which you can buy related to the theme of Bach. Here there once will be the place, where you will get entry to all Bach books in a summary, if you are on the hunt for a gift, or if you "precribe youself" a gift. All are listed, however each is listed only once. It's well arranged and complete. That is what I want you to meet everywhere on my platform related to gifts and Bach.
This "corner" of my gift shop is still new territory for me, too. At least soon, there will be the first electronic publication here, namely the biography of Johann Sebastian Bach for children. The project has already been transformed. Only the download, which should be automated soon, is still a small "way" to go. And then this gift "will work". Whether you will be able to purchase further Bach books electronically here, is what we simply have to try out.
The audio book alone comes in 3 three versions. It's a music gift in a length of 4.5 hours, a music gift in a length of 6 hours and a music gift in a length of almost 8 hours. Just explore one of two tiny differences between the book as a paper edition: check under the "17 exciting stories".
Actually, the biography, which my husband wrote for children is much exciting as an audio book, as the music makes all the difference. Of course, you can purchase the book with no music at all, but the version with 18 music pieces is somehow more attractive. 33 music pieces are spread over the whole narration time. Some are separating chapters, however some are somewhere very silent below the text, absolutely in the background. Plus it's not about 33 pieces, it's about some twenty, some of them appear twice, very few show up three times. If you spread them over 8 hours, you don't get the feeling, that actually this work would be better off with more pieces.
An exciting development: This might be the perfect gift for adults, too. At least my husband and I were told such a thing, when several acquaintances and friends had read this book. It is just "Bach easy going" and a real flaky introduction into the world of that composer. Alternately both little baroque cherubs talk about the "current events" (... if there is such a thing at all with little baroque cherubs) and Balthazar tells about the life of the master. This audio book might be just the perfect gift, to "consume" it as a mom, a dad, a grandfather or grandmother on his or her way to work, in the next traffic jam and after that hand it down to their children and grandchildren. A greatly pedagogical request.
The first gift to listen to: It's the Bach biography without any music (... picture is this page earlier). The second is this biography with 19 times Bach's music. And the third gifts is the whole story and 33 times the music of the master.
That is really one of the most exciting options, to meet Johann Sebastian Bach holistically.
It's a whole department subject "The Bach Figure" in the shop "Bach 4 You": the Bach figure, the small Bach figure, the Bach bust, the Bach statue (... which is the Bach monument), the Bach Ore Mountains figure and finally – back then the first one – the Bach tin figure.
Actually, first there was... the Bach tin figure. And how is that. Quite simply because my father-in-law was a collector of tin figures. And then, of course, you see whether Johann Sebastian Bach already has one. Yes, there was. Back then. But: the flat one wasn't nice enough to offer in my shop. A plastic one, however - that's how you call all those who aren't flat: they already existed. And what does a tin figure collector and his son do when there is no figure that you urgently "need" yet? You first have it engraved and then cast. And so there is also the flat Bach tin figure exclusively in "Bach 4 You". Nowhere else. The fully plastic tin figure completes the offer and both are available as painted and unpainted figures. Particularly with the Bach busts it is that not only 4 sizes are offered, but that these 4 Bach busts are those which have the best modelled faces.
The Bach figures from the Internet, the small Bach figure and the impressive Bach statues - we also call them Bach monuments - we could find them - despite intensive search - only in the following years. The small Bach statue was only made in 2019 and the two Bach monuments are now only available from a small manufactory in Spain. Finally, there are the tiny Bach figures, all of which are very special handicrafts from the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains). Together they are a cute and impressive family of Bach figures.
The Bach beer stein, an exciting theme at "Bach 4 You.
A few years ago, the Bach beer stein of 1985 was the impressive first of its kind and now we know how and where to find one or the other. And buy it to bring you together as a Bach fan and the Bach beer stein on one market place. The situation is different with the Bach beer stein in the middle of the pic above from the year 2000. It "plays in a completely different league". And that in its value, then the probability that you will find one at all and next of course ... also in price. You practically can't find it anymore and certainly not at all at the moment when you're looking for a gift. A completely different class are the new, modern and cool Bach beer steins. We offer them - soon in a huge range - via our online shops at Zazzle, Spreadshirt and other portals. They are really available in all variations: for conservative Bach fans and for hip Bach fans, for older Bach fans and for very young Bach fans. Finally, there are Bach cups and other Bach drinking vessels.
Right, none of the above is a Bach mug. These are composers mugs.
