The End: Hamburg 1943

Winterhouse Studio, Falls Village, Connecticut, 2004

Description

In the first English-language edition of The End, Hans Erich Nossack’s eyewitness account of the firebombing of Hamburg in 1943 has been elegantly translated and introduced by Joel Agee, and is accompanied by the wrenching photographs of Erich Andres. The direct, matter-of-fact presentation of the Hamburg experience of destruction warranted a respectful and similarly direct presentation: the crisp Dutch typeface Lexicon, on a simple Dutch grid. Completely black spreads signal breaks between sections, and Andres’ photography is treated to full-width display.
