Ackermann's Repository of Arts was an illustrated British periodical published from 1809 to 1829 by Rudolph Ackermann. Although commonly called Ackermann's Repository, or, simply Ackermann's, the formal title of the journal was Repository of arts, literature, commerce, manufactures, fashions, and politics, and it did indeed cover all of these fields. In its day, it had great influence on English taste in fashion, architecture, and literature. Ackermann employed Frederic Shoberl from the third issue in 1809 to 1828 when Shoberl moved on to similar projects.
Rudolph Ackermann (20 April 1764 in Schneeberg, Electorate of Saxony - 30 March 1834 in Finchley, London) was an Anglo-German bookseller, inventor, lithographer, publisher and businessman.
