At the beginning it was not quite sure where this task with the book would lead us. It was also not so clear to me how we should deal with such an old book and I was afraid we would have to read it all the way through despite the many different languages. But with the tasks it slowly became very clear how to handle the book and I found it quite interesting.
The first task was easy, but it was enough to give me a short but clear overview of what kind of book it is.
I have to say I was happy to be able to touch such an old book and I had not visited the old collection in the ETH library before. It was a pleasant experience and i was quite fond of this book, but it was weird to make a video of me flipping through the book for 20 minutes.
With this task I realized how confusingly all these versions are handled in the online libraries. But it was nice to see that this book has also been translated into other language regions and thus also made small waves.

In this task I have learned how the book is structured in terms of illustrations, chapters etc. The book generally has many illustrations, because it shows many geometries of the fortresses.
In general we had a lot of time for the tasks. Especially for the small tasks we had a relatively large amount of time available. However, I would have liked a little more time for the last task. During the last days and weeks I was very focused on the semester project and therefore had almost no time for the last task.
