• Struktur

Limewood, a cabbage leaf, packaging film and sandpaper all these materials have very different qualities. But what happens when you try to create a print with them? It is precisely this question that was the starting point for Struktur.
        The artist’s book delves into the influence of a material's structure on the printing process and the resulting graphics. The five chapters deal with other aspects too: What happens when you print the same material on different papers? What patterns are created when different materials are printed on top of each other? How high does the pressure have to be before a material breaks?

The entire book was letterpress printed on different papers in an edition of 20 numbered prints. The text is written in German with a translation into Czech at the end of the book and an index listing all the materials used.
