Graphic design of the Sight-_Seeing book. The project was started together with Wolfgang Scheppe and Jörg Koopmann.
The source of inspiration for the design of the Sight-_Seeing book was a couple of misprinted photographic books whose pictures – due to a wrong imposition of pages on press sheets – were slightly crossing the fold. Such a printing error has been taken as a reference point to conceive the layout of the Sight-_Seeing book.

The large number of pictures1 were disposed into 12 thematic groups and a 16-pages signature was reserved for each of them.

The layout of the pictures was designed taking into account not only the pages of a spread, but also all the other ones belonging to the same 16-pages signature, so that the images were related not only with those of the very next page but also with those of the following ones by means of the crossing of the fold, whereupon the usual, consecutive flow of reading can be abandoned in favor of this very new one.
The pictures in the book are by Michael Danner, Dominik Gigler, Monika Höfler, Jörg Koopmann, Verena Kathrein, Andrew Phelps and Matthias Ziegler
