First edition, limited to 60 signed and numbered copies. The text, by Peter Posei, is printed over 22 original black-and-white photographs by Ines v. Ketelhodt. The photographs feature a nude body, framed and lit to evoke a day landscape when the accordion-folded book is read from one direction and a night landscape when read from the other. Printed over the "landscapes" are figures by the graphic artist Peter Malutzki. These figures are printed with letterpress material, such as plates, brass rules, etc.
