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.
