Romano Hänni, Catalog: "The proportions of this handprinted book are 2:3, and the height and the width of the paper are divided into a grid of twelve parts. The intention was to prepare and present action, vision, thought, and reading via manual typesetting and printing on a hand press. The design considers what is available in the type shop: letters, typographic signs, brass lines and wood engravings that were manufactured in Paris around the year 1915. Each double page is an illustration of a visual, social, mathematical, or scientific theme. "After removing the dust jacket, you can fold the pages out as one strip with a length of 336 centimeters. The strip is composed of four printing sheets."
Text in German and supplemental pictorial booklet translation in English.
