Book design

Vast Land by Wolfgang Bellwinkel is a photographic study of the last three capitals of Myanmar: Mandalay (1857–1885), Yangon (1885–2005) and Naypyitaw (since 2005). Bellwinkel’s photographs tell the story of a country in which one tragedy has followed another since the mid 19th century: colonial appropriation, world and civil wars, natural disasters, military dictatorship, ethnic conflicts, expulsions. In contrast to the drama and density of the events, Bellwinkel’s images are sober and precise photographs with which he exposes the character and the different layers of time of the three cities. Complementing the photographs, the 20-page essay by sociologist Heinz Schütte provides an in-depth look at the history and present of the featured cities.

Topic is the paradise as a state of absolute perfection.

Bochum University of Applied Science

Book Design with Website Twin

For the relaunch of the annual book we came up with a concept which differs from the university’s publications of the last 10 years. Content replaces marketing. Professors were interviewed by students on specific topics, in two long image passages we show first campus life and second students’ projects. All descriptive text about courses, seminars and modules is reduced to a minimum and grouped together on four pages. Making space for the students’ perspective and output as well as giving a real insight into campus life was our main priority. The table of content doesn’t list chapters as usual, but instead features intriguing and curious terms that we’ve picked out of the interviews. Same for the website. The English translation at the end of the book is printed on blue paper. The cover features all the degree students’ names from 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Louis Kaplan explores in his book, english “At Wit’s End” the fascinating discourse on Jewish wit in the twentieth century when the Jewish joke became the subject of serious humanistic inquiry and inserted itself into the cultural and political debates among Germans and Jews against the ideologically charged backdrop of anti-Semitism, the “Jewish question,” and the Holocaust.
