The Zentis anniversary book “Von der Weisheit der Natur” (On the Wisdom of Nature), published in German and English, invites the reader to look at the history of the family business of the past 125 years from a new perspective – with essays by renowned authors and more than 80 hand-drawn illustrations. The design is inspired by nature: the feel of the 160 pages seems natural, while the wooden structure of the cover, with its two-coloured metallic finish, symbolises the stability of a tree. The layout plays with variations: each chapter unfolds its own fruity colour world, in the water-coloured drawings as well as in the typographic elements. The chapters vary between single and double column layouts in order to create accents.
