Auf der Erde leben Living on Earth

Celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology, this book pays tribute to the institute’s history and scientific renown. The idea was to enable readers to immerse themselves in the world of geology and to pique interest for this field of study. The design creates a coherent overall concept from a multitude of different individual papers and supports this with high-quality images. Abstract geological maps are used as a graphical element throughout to depict the stratification of the earth in an alienated manner. A ruler at the edge of the page represents the connection to scientific work.
