Kunst als Negation

The design of this book follows its content, a study on Minimal art. The cover with its ample white space and small title, which has been shifted to the edges, illustrates the interpretation of Minimalism as an art of the staged blank space. The industrial and cold look typical of Minimal art is emphasised by the use of technical-looking elements, such as the fluorescent red of the font, the coloured edges and the disproportionately large initials on the pages separating the individual chapters.
