Die Boten des Todes / Book

Die Boten des Todes

Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

An interpretation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Death's Messengers".
The story is about a young man who helps death out of a predicament. In
exchange, death promises to warn the young man before he comes for him.
However, the youth ignores all omens and dies unprepared at the end of the
tale. One often forgets death, just like one oversees its omens, which is
why the book was created using equally forgotten materials from the field of
printing. An unfinished, dirty book with lots of attention to detail, a
wandering stain of death, a youth of light and a letter giant.
