Der Orchideengarten

My home-made edition of the complete run of Der Orchideengarten is now decorating my bookshelves. If you have never heard of Der Orchideengarten, then you definitely should check it out. You can read more about this unique magazine here. Translation of some of the stories from the magazine by  Joe Bandel can be found here.

When it comes to my edition this is the whole block of 51 issues before binding:

  • Each issue is printed (one sided) in two columns on A4 page.
  • Each booklet is produced from black card back and clear plastic front with a black strip on the spine and contains 3 volumes separated by cover art printed in colour on decorative desert sand colour pages.
 I've been waiting for over 3 years to finally find time to produce these volumes. It's a real pleasure to be able to peruse the original contents of this German magazine.
