from pathos to paranoia

I am a regular if not exactly enthusiastic patron of my local bookshop. I try to buy at least some books there because I cling to the belief that it’s important to maintain those businesses which put a human face on the exchange of money for goods and services.

What I’m trying to say is that this is a functioning relationship, albeit one of a circumscribed kind: I write books; they sell books; I buy books from them (although not my own, because I know what’s in those ones already).

No, I thought, it’s true: this man has been doing these Shrigleyesque drawings and writings for years now, and he is doomed to utter obscurity, whereas David Shrigley probably lives high on the hog, sipping Kir Royal cocktails from the bra cups of deeply aroused and admiring Hollywood stars. Yes, this man – and perhaps thousands of other men and women – will labour away at their shriggles, yet be unable to gain any purchase on the public realm.

In conclusion, then, there are many, many Shrigleys out there; some of them are mutants – others are not wholly viable, still more may be necessary in their own strange way, but there is only one essential Shrigley.

As this book is also a type specimen of the typeface Fakir, it is set in this blackletter. And to stress the suffering: this book is printed in the author’s blood.

Wenn die junge Generation bemerken wird, dass das Nugget das Huhn Ginger aus «Chicken Run» ist, das Fischstäbchen der Regenbogenfisch aus dem Malbuch, das Sweet & sour Schweinchen Babe und der Hamburger die verrückte Kuh Mama Muh – dann wird das 20. Jahrhundert definitiv zu Ende sein.

OIL No.1

2010
0729

Oil is the first publication in a series of artist books of the German photographer Peter Tillessen. The rainbow-coloured shimmering oil leaks seem artificially staged. Captured by the photographer during several strolls through the city, they point to a widespread daily phenomenon, which is known to every urban promeneur. Tillessen’s photographs reveal the immanent beauty as well as the fascinating colour palette and abstract formal language of the oil leaks. The photographer transforms a trivial appearance into an artistic associative image.

OIL No.1 by Peter Tillessen

Die schönsten Schweizer Bücher 2009

Zwischen iPad und Kindle, Apps und Downloads stellt die Schweiz souverän The Future Issue – die Dokumentation der 30 schönsten Schweizer Bücher 2009. Weil es schöne Bücher mit allen E-Medien aufnehmen und sich einen Platz in Hand und Herz von Lesern sichern – vielleicht im Gegensatz zu lieblos gemachten Druckerzeugnissen. Aber die finden sowieso nicht den Weg ins Finale des Wettbewerbs um die schönsten Schweizer Bücher.
