We all read all the time, every day, consciously or unconsciously. The book "From readers to readers" is
aimed at those who are interested in reading. My 22 classmates and I dealt with the topic of reading by
paying a three-day visit to the Andreas Züst Library
in Appenzell. Andreas Züst was a fanatical book
collector. After his death, the "Andreas Züst Library" was built in his memory, housing 12,000 books in
a small space. Each student embarked on his or her own personal collecting journey. This book contains
230 pictures, 230 book cover illustrations, 23 conversations about reading and joins them together to
form a slimmed-down version of the library.
Since the book contains a lot of content, it was clear to me to design an informative book that is easy
to flip through. With the narrow, high format, I set myself a rule at the beginning, according to which
the typography and images had to follow. I was inspired by the format of the leporellos that you can
take with you to cultural venues. They are designed to be held in one hand without difficulty and to
deliver information quickly and clearly.
