Die Philosophie des Gärtners

Gardening is one of the most basic actions. Therefore today it’s a way to fulfill the desire to do “the right thing”. And it never becomes boring: In gardening you can discover a new world every year, the possibilities of the where, what and how are endless and unpredictable. The book offers insights by philosophers, historians, agronomists, architects and internet activists and forms the fourth book of the philosophy series, with a reduced and colorful design like the others.

Die Philosophie des Laufens

You can run everywhere at any time, it’s diverse and affordable for everyone. It shapes our character and gives us freedom, it broadens our horizon and teaches us about ourselves and the world. In this book philosophers, journalists, athletes and writers tell about friendship, nature, pain and pleasure. So it’s not only the runners clothes that let you shine – as they do on the book cover – but also your body and mind.

Michael Weins, Katharina Gschwendtner: Sie träumt von Pferden

We are all animals – but sometimes we forget about that. This book tells stories about animals. And humans. Borders blur between dream and reality, human ethics and pure beauty, and, first of all, between animals and humans. Katharina Gschwendtner and Michael Weins show in drawings and short stories the mysterious turns of life. The typography underlines the the contrast and the unpredictable: Hard and soft, classic and contemporary.

Florian Wacker: Albuquerque

Albuquerque is a city in New Mexico, where international hot-air balloon riders meet every year. And it’s the title of Florian Wacker’s first book – a collection of short stories in which people at the edge of society are the protagonists. The atmosphere oscillates between down-to-earth and somehow magic – and so does the design: old school beige linen and plain letters meet ascending bright red balloons that are searching their way through the typography.
