Descrip­ti­on

The Erz­berg, the cities of Eisen­erz, Leo­ben or Maria­zell – pla­ces full of histo­ry in the heart of Aus­tria. Until today this area was most­ly known for its steel pro­duc­tion sites, now the focus slow­ly shifts towards tou­rism.

To show­ca­se the rich varie­ty of tra­di­ti­ons and pla­ces of inte­rest, Eat Wri­te Live tra­vel book aut­hors Vera Bacher­n­egg & Katha­ri­na Maria Zim­mer­mann were asked to wri­te about the hid­den trea­su­res above and below ground. They part­ne­red with Stu­dio Marie Zie­ger for art direc­tion & edi­to­ri­al design. Inspi­ra­ti­on for the edi­to­ri­al design ori­gi­na­ted in typi­cal sym­bols and cha­rac­te­ris­tics of iron mining. The diver­se color palet­te pays homage to the various con­di­ti­ons of iron its­elf – steel grey, rus­ty red or shiny sil­ver. Rough around the edges, the cho­sen typo­gra­phy gives the book a clas­sic yet con­tem­pora­ry feel, its serifs remi­nis­cent of the infa­mous sym­bol fea­turing ham­mer & pick.

( R ) EISEN takes its readers on a jour­ney around the com­plex topic of iron pro­duc­tion and pro­ces­sing. But time doesn’t stand still – an emer­ging baker, an inno­va­ti­ve beer bre­wer or a young Leder­ho­sen-fabri­cant embel­lish the book with their uni­que sto­ries and anec­do­tes.
