The book’s eye-caching cover is a filigree laser-cut multilayer relief, which picks up the formal language of the Merzbau by Dada artist Kurt Schwitters and continues as a gap into the book. A closer look at the artistic paper landscape reveals the letters “Hannover”.

It also portrays the metaphor of the agora as a central marketplace where important topics can be discussed and experienced. Inside the hand-bound book, meticulous design elements, micro typography and fantastic illustrations build relate to the passages of the manuscript and flank the captivating bid with a pictorial flare.
