Blessing and Transgressing: A Live Institute



What makes this book interesting is its unequivocally individual voice. The alternation between images and text is very well balanced and the individuality of the book is also visible in the cover. Simple and “established” graphic design elements such as the grid and the columns are, if looked at closely, used in an inventive and innovative way. It is a voice we barely recognize and it doesn’t adhere to any trend. The result is unique, timeless and completely original.
