The worlds oldest and still existing publisher “Schwabe” is situated in Basel. Its long history of printing and publishing books has its roots in the 14nth century. This project was launched on the occasion of the 525th Schwabe-anniversary. The task was the creation of a special edition on Schwabes history through those centuries.
The aim was to include the modern appearance of todays company, but also showing the long history and quality since its foundation.
The books squarish format represents the window of the present time. Once opened, the format becomes a long rectangle that refers to the chronicle of the last 525 years up to now.
