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.
