Design and co-edition of the new book of Swiss photographer Joël Tettamanti published by Benteli. With one book in three editions we rediscover the unique qualities of the printed product in the era of digitalization, combining the means of traditional book production with print-on-demand in one and the same book.
“Works 2001-2019” is a work-in-progress, in the best sense of the word. It provides an overview on Tettamanti’s work so far, invites readers onto a journey along the long-term subjects he addresses.
The book comes in three different editions: While the Basic Edition presents all photographs in black-and-white – offste printed, the Special Edition offers readers the choice to choose their one favourite image to appear in colour – print on-demand. Each motive can only be selected six times.
The Premium Edition provides an additional signed C-Print limited edition.
This allows for the photographer to include upcoming projects and update some of the contents on a regular basis to add new perspectives to this context. The reader make a more active choice about his very own issue of the publication.
