In spring 2019 Katrin spent two months alone in Japan. It was her first visit to the country. Amazed, surprised, excited and overwhelmed by emotions, her many impressions have led to Japan Guide – an exploration of the country from her artist’s perspective. The book consists of texts and drawings from Katrins journey and subsequent mental excursions to Japan.
Each book is unique. We printed the pencil drawings and the abstract colour pages on the Office Offset press. They feature colour gradients resulting from the cleaning of printing plates and the printing cylinder.
The book was awarded as one of the 25 Schönsten Deutschen Bücher / Most Beautiful German Books 2023
