year of making
The book "Herr Fix und Fertig" is a redesign of the Munich phone book.
It visualizes the name "FIX" , which represents all of the masses of data in the phone book, and consists of 22611 pages, which are derived from 22 611 names.
I looked at how many names in the phone book started with F (18 706), I ( 3893 ) and X (112), and from this there were a total of 22 611 people which also translates into 22611 pages.
F, I and X are appearing on the outside of the book again, through printing till the edge of each page.
The entire book measures a height of 83 cm and weights around 40 kg.
The consumer/user is confronted by this oversized book, relevant as the original, but nowadays less significant in our daily lives. Through this new interpretation it again gains importance.
