The dissertation “Der Atzmann” by Anja Lempges was published by „Schnell & Steiner“. „Der Atzmann” belongs to the curiosities of the late Middle Ages. Our design of the publication explains the genesis of the term „Atzmann” as well as the conditions of the origin and the historical use of the desk. Various printing techniques and refinements are used to highlight design ideas and subtleties of this doctoral thesis. For an optimal result we always challenge the production department and create all necessary printing and production templates in house.
