The “Most Beautiful German Books 2021” have been chosen and we are thrilled that Scheidegger & Spiess is represented with two books from our current list! The jury selected 25 books from over 600 submissions in an elaborate procedure with 14 jurors.
Named among the winners were Emma Kunz Cosmos. A Visionary in Dialogue with Contemporary Art, edited by Yasmin Afschar, Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, and designed by Atlas Studio, as well as Surrounded by Art. The Julius Baer Art Collection, edited by Barbara Staubli and Barbara Hatebur, designed by Bonbon.
Congratulations to all those who have contributed to this success!
Barbara Ellmerer takes principles from physics, biology, and cosmology as the starting point for her paintings. She transforms energy flows in cells and atoms in painting and makes invisible processes comprehensible: in color and shape, sensually. This large-scale book presents a selection of oil paintings and works on paper from the period 2010 to 2020. Depicted in full and in detail, Barbara Ellmerer's paintings can be experienced in unusually presence.
