Project: Sixty Years of Children’s Books Catalog   Images Words Thumbnails Tags

For six decades, the Klingspor Museum has been exhibiting international children’s books. To celebrate the sixtieth exhibition, we decided to compile twenty books ranging from the nineteenths century to the twenty first. Leafing through the publication, the spreads connect and form an new book.

For the jacket, I chose details from each book’s cover and stitched them together, so that almost each one is visually linked to the next. Upon opening the catalog, the full covers are revealed in their relative size to each other, while also serving as a table of contents.
