Sebastian Peetz delivered the creative concept, typography, and images for Hannover's bid book ›Agora of Europe‹ for the application as a European Capital of Culture 2025. The book's eye-catching cover is a filigree laser-cut multilayer relief, which picks up the formal language of the ›Merzbau‹ by Dada artist Kurt Schwitters and continues as a gap into the book. A closer look at the artistic paper landscape reveals the letters ›Hannover‹. Inside the – entirely handbound – book, meticulous design elements, micro typography, and fantastic illustrations relate to the passages of the manuscript and flank the captivating bid with pictorial flare.
