Liner notes: Gespräche über das Büchermachen

The starting point for Liner Notes is about bookmaking, Leipzig, for example, “was a series of books produced in recent years by book-makers who have studied at the Academy of Graphic Arts and Book Art. The editors Markus Dreßen, Lina Grumm, Anne Koenig and Jan Wenzel were not interested in the connection between these book-makers, not the construction of a school, but the very different approaches and attitudes that are visible in the books. What does it mean to design a book? In fictional dialogues and in conversation logs, in which bookmakers talk in detail about the development process of one of their books, “Liner Notes” investigates this question. The result is a reflection in the medium: a book made from books and whose use is to give ideas for new books.
