This first page I’ve chosen for my surprise on how elaborate the beginning page, where the text seemed to start was worked out, with the chosen font and picture, though it only was repeated on the following page, as far as I’ve seen, the rest of the text didn’t have this.
This page I chose for an obvious fact, hidden in the end of the book I found about 30 prints of illustrations (mostly explanatory I assume) amongst wich this unfold-able one lied, I find it impressive and always fun to have something like this in a book.
The second part of the post I won’t be able to do quiet now, since the original work will until the end of November (so far we’ve been told) be in exhibition and therefore won’t be available to us until it is back.
The second part; meeting in person
Finally being able to meet our book we were surprised by its actual size and heaviness, probably due to its larger writing it went unnoticed by us. Though the most surprising were the unfordable pages, sometimes reaching up to four times the size of the already large book. (it itself being about A2) The bookbinding of leather and marbled paper, was tough a bit lacking compared to the amazingly detailed drawings.
