ZEIT-WÖRTER – SPRACHE IM WANDEL DER ZEIT by Nina Fischer

(German Language through Time)

Her master thesis is based on the gateway between the development of time 
consciousness and the change of German language. The raw material consists of
ten dictionaries from the 17th to the 21st century and also ten expressions with
the word “time” that originated within that period. The publication comprises
ten chapters in ten different formats that are orientated in size and composition
on the genuine images of the dictionaries.

A rainbow in your hand. Started as Masashi Kawamura’s personal project in summer 2007, and was soon published from a Japanese bookstore “Utrecht”. It’s a flipbook, but rather than seeing animation, it creates a 3D rainbow in your hand. This book won this years NY ADC silver cube.
