The Athens Recorder



The Athens Recorder is a photographic project by Johannes Schwartz, that resulted in a beautiful archive of the city Athens in the year 2015. The pictures present a model of life in the city, portraying streets, people in their daily routines and buildings.

The city life has been stopped in motion. The pictures are presented and printed in a big size in a good resolution on soft paper that is nice to the touch and it refers to classic newspaper material. The book contains a beautiful story with a real vibe to it.

The cover is very clean and minimalistic. Soft white on the cover with a red title accents this memorial and romantic content, which is consistent.

The Athens Recorder is clearly divided in 17 chapters which makes it easy to navigate.

The book mainly consists of pictures and there is not much use of typography. The sustainability of composition and particularities is impressive.

On the inside the pictures are printed in black-and-white and one section in cyan.
