The book De Olderluede Verlangen einen nien Pastor. Die Reformation der Jakobi-Gemeinde Kirchrode was published for the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the reformation in 2017. Archived handwritten facsimiles, images and designed graphics narrate the history of the reformation and its impact on the present time.
The design provides a stage for the historical facsimiles by printing them on colored ground facing their translations. The handwritten texts are accompanied by explications of historic events. Helpful comments on contexts and cultural backgrounds are facilitated through portraits of historic figures, images of art pieces and infographics. Design and text provide a vibrant yet structured experience of diverse materials.
