Basic description of the project: One often forgets death, just like one often oversees its omens; which is why this book was made from equally forgotten printmaking materials.
The print clichés of the letters and images recall ancient times, an era of fairy tales.
The book is wrapped in a shroud and bound with a stamp that can convey parts of the fairy tale further and further.
The different designs of the German and English parts depict death in flux. The portrayal of death as a constantly changing stain feeds into the same idea.
