KÖLN GOLD – Stadtschätze / City TreasuresSchimmmelpenninck.Gestaltung in Zusammenarbeit mit Weiss, Freiburg
KÖLNGOLD presents treasures from art, culture and everyday life of the 2000-year history of Cologne. More than 250 pieces of art, buildings, manuscripts and everyday objects come under terms such as openness, pride, joie de vivre and solidarity – characteristics that are attributed to the Cologne mentality. The book is not only a cultural compendium of the Rhine metropolis, but also a portrait of Cologne, commented on by 18 personalities of today’s urban society. With pride in the city’s treasures and their care, you can create a future worth living in. That is the main idea of KÖLNGOLD.
A “Book object” with a multitude of finishing, panorama pages, documents, posters and facsimiles. You find foldouts, also in altar fold, gold printing, silkscreening, uvi varnish, also raised, cold foil overprinted and die cuttings.
