This poems collection is called ‘coup de grace | zwischenstation’
and was self-published in Frankfurt in 1998 in a limited edition of
100. It features poems by authors Bartosz Maj and Gernot Heinkelein.
The poems are printed on loose sheet 170g stock [schneidersöhne,
recystar matt] offering the reader the possibility to change the order
according to personal taste. Gernot Heinkeleins' ‘coup de grace’
collection is typographically rather minimal reflecting the extremely
direct and 'straight-forward' language and feeling of his work. 'Zwischenstation’
is the more abstract, more emotional, sad and wild part and is designed
in individual solutions illustrating a chosen aspect of the poem.
The cover of this publication is handmade using embossing and a rather
complicated cover concept which was produced using one sheet of 400g
stock [schneidersöhne, arches expression]. Each print has its
individual number printed on the back.
