special places

Places are everywhere. Until we explore them, they remain white spots on the outer or inner map. Only the presence of an observer is a place where a form, a shape and definition, only the view of a visitor makes a place special. We opened us to the places of memory, places the reality and the places of our dreams. This is our travelogue.

Garten Eden (Garden of Eden)

In the Garden of Eden sitting under the palm trees of knowledge, a feisty Eve makes decisions beyond good and evil. Adam, meanwhile, saw the tree of life, while celebrating sin in the deep thicket of the forest itself. Whatever you want to call this auspicious Location: Paradise, Nirvana, Avalon ... Our ideas of them are to be found in this world.

Alter Ego

They are the sorts of others, we could be if we had taken a different turn here or there. They are, when we appeared, we would be silly, bible fixed, choleric, bold, energetic, scary, meaner. The fifth SPRING band collects dialogues with characters with whom we have daily handling, without ever coming across them on the track.

Familiensilber (Family Silver)

Not everything that you inherit, you want to have. This applies to the valuable but tarnished grandmother's silver cutlery just as it does to the predisposition to obesity or idleness. Each family has an infinite number of stories to tell, twelve of which are gathered in this volume.

Reineke F. (frei nach Goethe) / Goethe's "Reynard the Fox"
"Reynard the Fox" deals with power, violence, guilt, intrigue, injustice and lies. It is about greed, ambition, fickleness, cowardice, stupidity and deceitfulness. Reynard is both a repelling and fascinating subject. Like its predecessors, this issue of SPRING is a narratively creative experiment in which each illustrator has enjoyed their own freedom of interpretation. Each of the 12 artists has reworked one chapter of Goethe's work. With English subtitles.
