Publisher Note

Butterfly, Schmetterling, summer bird, Schmandlecker, Müllermaler, a small animal, with seemingly amazing capabilities. It is said it could trigger hurricanes, with a single beat of its wings. The variety of their form, the number of their species is immense but so, also is their decline. It is a symbol of love, of poetry, of kitsch, in the Middle Ages witches turned into butterflies, it is an exercise in yoga, a training device for the deltoid muscles.
The booklet contains 42 spreads, each with a butterfly that is printed in risograph printing with 8 different colors (monochrome, bi-color, or tri-color). The pages of the booklet are not imposed and they are bound with a rubber band, so that the coming together of the butterfly-halves continually creates new forms and colours.
