In the 18th and 19th century the textile industry was a big branch of trade in Eastern Switzerland. Foundation of this work is an extensive portrait collection from this period. 15 authors and five musicians selected portraits to which they created prose or music pieces, to interconnect facts and fiction in an entertaining way with each other. The design manages to present the individual approaches in a consistent and very clear layout. The cover can be unfolded to a poster showing the different portraits.
