Book concept and design. In collaboration with Nadja Schoch + Matthias Gieselmann, 2011

Munitionsfabrik is the magazine of Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design. Each issue is created by a different team of editors, writers and graphic designers. The theme of issue N° 21 is »Scheitern« (failure). The content consists mostly of text contributions, therefore we decided to design a paperback, in contrast to the magazine- and newspaper-like formats of former issues. At first glance it seems to be a typical one but looking closer at it a subtle confusion may occur. Upside down layout and tricky typography challenge the reader.
There are 20 inserted pictures, chosen out of 120 different photographs initially rated as a fail by the photographer. Each book is unique because of the individually selected photographs.

Munitionsfabrik 21, »Scheitern«.
317 pages, paperback.
With contributions on art, culture theory, philosophy and literature.
Editors: Ferial Nadja Karrasch & Gloria Hasnay
