Die Reise zum Mittelpunkt des Waldes

How do you become a good father? The protagonist wants to learn from the best and makes his way to the forest to find „Reuber“. The result is a beautifully illustrated and written homage to the courage and the forest by Rán Flygenring (illustration) and Finn-Ole Heinrich (text). In the typography, hand-drawn elements complement each other with calm classic typesetting. The workmanship also has a major effect: the trimmed edges of the hardcover transform the overall object not into a coffee table, but into a workbook.

Ziegel #16

A large shiny field of orange-red metallic hot foil reflects the light. Inside, bold, almost tapering letters form the word “brick”. Above, an angry, panting wolf. The first edition of the newly designed Hamburg yearbook for literature brings together poetry and fiction by almost fifty Hamburg authors as well as illustrations by Line Hoven. The book – whether cover or spine – attracts attention and makes you curious to look inside and lose yourself in the various texts.
