Discover Steel #3. Das große Stahlbuch. Zutaten, Köche und Rezepte.

ThyssenKrupp’s “Discover Steel” image book series reflects the enormous versatility of steel.
The central idea of “The big steel book” comes from the concept of “steel cooking”, a process in steel production where steel “is cooked like soup”. The cookbook covers everything from the ingredients required for steel production to the material’s most diverse uses.
In order to make the material palpable, the title page features a blister made of the raw materials used in steel production. The specially produced endpaper is also coated with these raw materials.
