Printed in red and black on white, with Manganelli's text surrounding cut-outs from various novels.
Manganelli's ouroboric mini novel ... is used bilingual in German and English translations. The two texts run through the accordion book as unbroken lines. The binding structure of the book (printed on both sides) allows to reconnect the text ends to the text beginnings, thus associating an endless (ouroboric) reading

deckled edge
beautiful binding (edge shows stitch binding), book cloth, imprint and indent on bookcloth (burn?)
transluscent paper shows symmetry of both language (designer managed to keep the rag very similar between both languages, but it makes sense because maybe Danish is not more or less concise than English)
white space, pacing
maybe consider transculent paper in my book?
use clear film to test out, then buy vellum?

printmaking-printed
sometimes while and black invert to show differences between the two pears
a hard outer case to encase all the pages, then a softer book cover that look as if perfect binding cover
