  • Postage Stamp Designs: From Kafka to Loriot by Hans Gunter Schmitz
    Postage Stamp Designs: From Kafka to Loriot (Multiple languages, Hardback) Hans Gunter Schmitz

    The world's first official postage stamp was issued in May 1840: the legendary "One Penny Black" with the profile of the Queen of England. The new payment system in the field of logistics by Sir Rowland Hill quickly gained hold all around the world. For the first time, this publication discusses the significance and functions of postage stamps as prominently visible elements of communication design. The expressiveness inherent in the small-sized images and the very peculiar and heterogeneous mage vocabulary of this medium of mass culture is analyzed based on more than 40 designs by Hans Günter Schmitz. The book also presents concepts that were not implemented, in addition to sketches, studies, and variations ? from Adenauer to the film festival Berlinale, from a mathematicians' congress to the famous Wuppertal suspension railway.

  • Risomania by John Z. Komurki
    Risomania (English, Hardback) John Z. Komurki, Luca Bendandi

    Risography, named after the Japanese firm Riso, is a stencil printing process based on screen printing techniques that was developed in the transition phase from mechanical to digital printing. Although the printer looks like a copying machine, the colors are transferred onto the paper without the use of heat or chemicals, saving energy and making the process ecologically friendly. Graphic artists and designers from around the world have now rediscovered the risograph for themselves ? along with other machines for similar almost forgotten techniques such as mimeography ?and sparked an unexpected renaissance of analog printing.A comprehensive introduction that addresses past, present and future is followed by an essay about the key pioneers in the contemporary risography scene. In the chapter Risoworld notable risography-oriented publishers, printers and design studies from around the world are presented. At the heart of the book are fabulous, hugely diverse examples such as postcards, magazines, posters, flyers and experimental printed products, all of which inspire by the force of their color, their unique textures and, above all, the perfectly imperfect authenticity of risography.

  • 2d Visual Perception by Moritz Zwimpfer
    2d Visual Perception (Multiple languages, Hardback) Moritz Zwimpfer

    The time-related dimension of image perception is increasingly heightened because the sequence of moving pictures is so strongly accelerated by virtue of the very short cuts that it becomes impossible for the viewer to make out the individual elements. Under these conditions he loses every notion of autonomy opposite these images, meaning also that he can be manipulated by. With the aid of more than 200 pictures, elementary phenomena of visual perception are described in this book that one encounters on a daily basis. Brief accompanying texts encourage the viewer to give the pictures his deeper attention in order to consciously experience the phenomena. This book gives a comprehensive, clearly structured overview, and the illustrated examples span from two-dimensional form and color phenomena to the formation of spatial perception up to the influence that emotions and logic have upon perception.

  • Study of Rhythms and Technology by Paul Schatz Stiftung
    Study of Rhythms and Technology (English, Paperback) Paul Schatz Stiftung

    The world can be turned inside out. The world has rhythm. This perspective of wood sculptor, technician and inventor Paul Schatz offers whole new viewpoints. He succeeded in creating a technology which brings the laws and rhythms of nature in line. Schatz's journey of discovery leads to stunning developments in design, in the perception of the geometric and architectural space, and to a new art of mechanical engineering. Oloids and acuboids are forms that are intriguing in their beauty. Turbula and Inversina mixers are used for industrial purposes while the oloid has proved very useful in water and environmental engineering. The boo presents life's work that hasn't suffered a loss of currency. The study of Rhythms and Technology bridges the gap between art and natural sciences and offers inspiration for the work of philosophers and practitioners alike.
