Engelberg / «noman edition»

An unusually courageous touristic publication for the exceptional tourist who is not seeking the "Inner Switzerland" of the usual postcard pictures, but here finds it in a pictorial documentation of mentalities and of provocative topics like "Switzerland/foreign countries" or "traditional/modern". High-Alpine and highly original in this book are not only the imperturbed, strongly emotionalized and thrilling pictorial dramaturgy but the entire concept of the book and its authorship, a collective of seven persons who produced it as an officially commissioned work.
