No book about things, that don’t have anything to do with print

The subject for this book was simply to create a print-object. Well, we took the task literally and designed a book about print. The ambition behind this book was to convey trend research and hot topics of the print industry into a book full of stories as well as a glossary of print terms and its definitions.

BookAn artistic book about print

The title and the table of contents are arranged in the center of the book. That way the book is divided into two parts with respect to content. The part with term definitions constitutes the first chapter of the book. The negative foliation results from the schematically backward flipping. These pages are similar to a glossary; with a maximum of one definition per page, which is illustrated with an abstract picture. The print-stories are found after the table of contents. They are designed in a slightly more free and artistic manner than the first part of the book. In the ten stories, the special terms are linked to the explanation in the definition-part.
