Black gloss foil on cover


PUR perfect binding



Minimal design, exquisite typography, and an extremely compelling concept—where can I buy a copy?! The black foil on the cover begs to be caressed and each pull quote actually pulls me in. Maybe we can get a PDF to read?

As part of a self-initiated project to investigate how the older generations are affected by the huge changes in the way we communicate, I sat down with nine people who could give me a first-hand account of the societal and cultural developments throughout their lifetimes. They shared their stories with me and answered eight questions.

A limited run of fifteen books was published and distributed to the contributors and their families. One daughter wrote, “I have found out more about my own dad than I have ever known — especially about the war as he never would talk about it.”
