Handset and letterpress printed by Peter Malutzki with lines in different colors. With text from “Natürliches Zauber-Buch oder Neueröffneter Spiel-Platz rarer Künste, Nürnberg 1745. An edition of 60 numbered copies, each book signed by the relevant artist. Fine.
Together v. Ketelhodt and Malutzki selected 18 black-and-white photographs which were composed into a sequence depicting movement, enhanced by the concertina form. Where Ines v. Ketelhodt has used letterpress text to complement her photographs of a figure in motion, Peter Malutzki has used color lines to form his design on the page. A clever and successful concept, and what adds to the appeal is the way both artists have often chosen the same place on the spread to add their text or design.
