G. B. BONISCH

G. B. Bonisch, is an intensely personal archive of this time whilst also providing a keepsake of family history. It has been designed in a way that can be easily stored, located and understood for future generations. The core of this content is kept in its raw and authentic form, exactly as it was experienced. However, the process of archiving is not entirely neutral, an added layer of personal interpretation can be easily identified throughout the publication.
This is the personal archive of George Bernard Bonisch.
