Das Stammertal 1831–1980

Das Stammertal 1831–1980
 

Under the guid­ance of a com­mu­nal com­mit­tee and a com­mis­sioned his­to­rian, a large num­ber of vol­un­teers spent ten years com­pil­ing a new local his­tory of the three Zurich com­munes of Ober­stammheim, Un­ter­stammheim and Wal­talin­gen. The de­sign of­fers a con­tem­po­rary ap­proach to a genre dif­fi­cult to han­dle con­vinc­ingly, with­out re­sort­ing to any ide­o­log­i­cal no­tions of Heimat. The en­gag­ing ap­peal be­gins with a ‘post-pointil­list' ab­stract map on the cover and two full-page, full-bleed pho­tos on the end­pa­per that lead into an image se­quence and thus into the book it­self. In­side, the clear struc­ture makes the book easy to nav­i­gate, while the se­lec­tion, weight­ing and dra­maturgy of the di­verse il­lus­tra­tive ma­te­ri­als - his­tor­i­cal pho­tos, draw­ings, plans, sta­tis­tics and so on - are suit­ably nu­anced. It is the only book in this year's se­lec­tion that was printed in Switzer­land.
