Dorval, Quebec

Dorval is a small town in Canada near Montreal. In April 2020, almost the entire staff of Herron Residence had stopped showing up to work for fear of catching Covid-19. Residents had been left to fend for themselves for days. For thirty-one of them, help came too late. This powerful and award winning short story by Frank Schliedermann is transformed into a special edition book made of finest paper and finishing. But the dynamic font on the cover already points to the dramatic emotional journey inside.

Ziegel #17

The second edition of the re-designed Hamburg yearbook of literature welcomes readers with a shiny field of metallic blue hot foil with a scene from space – two astronauts who landed on the lettering “Ziegel” (brick), an illustration by Sascha Hammer. It invites you on a journey into the unknown, into the inner part, where fifty authors present their texts – from poetry to graphic novels to fiction.

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.

Stefan Beuse: Das Buch der Wunder

The siblings Penny and Tom are very different: Penny is open for every kind of magic, Tom always needs a scientific explanation. But then more and more inexplicable things happen and the border between the visible and the invisible world becomes permeable. The forest on the cover is a place of longing and attraction: a light and powerful paradise that can also turn into a dense, dark and mysterious space.

Die Philosophie des Gärtners

Gardening is one of the most basic activities. Therefore, today it is a way to meet the requirement of “doing the right thing”. And it never gets boring: Gardening is a new world to discover every year, the possibilities of where, what and how are endless and unpredictable. The book offers insights from philosophers, historians, agronomists, architects and Internet activists and forms the fourth book in the philosophy series – as always minimalistic and colorful.
