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.

Verlorener Morgen

“Verlorener Morgen” is a novel about a whole country: Romania. It’s history is marked by suffering in many different ways and decades, the book concentrates on the World War I and the 1980s. But the protagonists are strong, especially the women. This strength becomes almost tangible in the form of three strong and impasto stripes of color – the Romanian flag – which cover up the gray reality in the photo behind.

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.

Michael Weins: Goldener Reiter

Jonas’ mother lost control and is instructed into psychiatry. Jonas tries to keep his normal life – but what is normal actually? The title of the book and the design with the shiny golden paper create a big contrast to the unsteady and broken atmosphere in the book, but at the same time, they symbolize the indestructible connection between mother and child and the hope for a happy ending.
