Inside, fifty writers present their texts from poetry to graphic novel and fiction.

Karin Rocke: Edition 2021

“A small number of fine things” is the title of Karin Rocke’s Edition 2021. Romantic coloring and masculine elements mix to an extraordinary tension. The color scale ranges from soft lemon and rusty coral to milky white and deep navy. These beautiful tones come back in soft gradients in the layout to stress the connection to the pictures. Welcome, summer!

Das Alphabet der Puppen

Camilla Grudova takes us into a scary-magical and grotesquely humorous universe, populated by dolls, sewing machines, tin cans and mirrors, determined by absurd ideologies and strange rules. The artwork on the book cover by Maurizio Anzeri and the typography transport the mix of beauty and distraction in an almost tangible, three dimensional way.
