Adieu is a book about obituaries.
40 important European artists who died between 1984 and 2011 are reminded on the pages of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. My concept focuses on the act of remembering: when we think of a person, the image we visualize is not clear and complete, but It’s composed of the details we known of them.
That’s why I have chosen transparent paper: some letters are missing and only by turning the page you can read the entire word. The transparent paper makes them blurry and unclear to read. The book is bound with the Japanese technique, without a double page.
you can read Adieu (if you know German)
