Book

Über die Einsamkeit des Einzelnen

Back

This work, consisting of a puristic book, a creative magazine and atmospheric posters, explores the various aspects of solitude. The book presents solitude as a disease, as an ideal and as a trend. Widows and orphans, which are usually considered as typographical mistakes, are used as subtle stylistic devices. The artistic design and the gentle appeal of this publication illustrate that solitude is not necessarily something negative, but can also bear an immense poetic and creative potential.
