Rudolph Ackermann (1764-1834) was born in Saxony. He was an Anglo-German bookseller, inventor, printmaker, publisher and businessman and was active in London from 1787. In 1795 he opened his first print shop, where he sold prints, books, artist materials and exhibited paintings. In 1797 he moved to larger premises and he began publishing decorative hand-coloured prints. In 1809 Ackermann launched the monthly magazine, The Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions and Politics in an illustrated British periodical. A new issue of the magazine was published every month until 1829. A few months after he closed the magazine, he had a stroke that left him paralysed and he handed over his business to his sons in 1832.
