Herzsprung / Brochure


Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

This illustrated brochure describes the life story of a Tibetan woman who had to flee her homeland as a child, finding a new home in the Pestalozzi Children’s Village in Trogen, Switzerland. Many of the original documents were assembled into a kind of diary. Several pages resemble a typical photo album. On one page a photo is even “missing”, and is placed loosely inside the pages of the book. The cover has a slightly smudged look, enhancing the impression of authenticity. The label on the cover is glued in by hand in a specially recessed space. The whole booklet is bound together with a rubber band, so that nothing can get lost.
