WegenDemGutenEssen / Because of the good food


Basis of the book is a 80-year-old recipes-notebook, my Grandmother led as a 13 year old. To discover the knowledge, work, life and love behind it, I led interviews with almost 100 years old women, knowing my Grandmother. Consisting of 5 chapters: the notebook pages with comments of the ladies, the staple food, the interviews, life images, and a translation of the recipes; design, format, grid and typography are based on the notebook. Main stylistic device is the copy, the most direct form of reproduction. A reflection but also an original since itŽs not repeatable 1:1. The pages are not digitalized, they are used as
”original copy“.
