L’EUROPE C’EST DEUTSHLAND QUAND TU RATE LABA TU EST FOUTUE MON FRÈRE, LE RESTE C’EST DU FOUMA-FOUMA!



Malin: I’m quite happy to have this book in our selection. It is a student project for which the designers went to an abandoned panopticon and documented the traces and marks of the former inhabitant on the walls. It is quite a ruff publication, printed on something like office paper, and probably quite a cheap production. There are no expensive production tricks to distract from the design. It is what it is! I like it, and it also fits the content.

 

Ruby: I really like how you point out that this book doesn’t contain any distracting tricks, Malin, because I also got that sense when viewing the book.

 

Birgit: I agree. The rough feeling of the book really fits with the concept. I also feel the concept is very strong and well found in its simplicity. Sometimes that’s all a book needs. The title doesn’t really make sense, though. Inside joke?

Auke: I can think of many ways you might end up in a prison. And you can peek at all these little notes, statements and scribbles that prisoners carved or wrote on the walls. I’d rather browse through this book, though. These students collected it all for you. A great find that’s kept straightforward and rough as it should be. No fuss. A great publication.
