MAX ERNST—DIE SAMMLUNG
PETER SCHAMONI

2013. The exhibition catalogue features all the major works of art by Max Ernst, the outstanding surrealist, within the collection of Peter Schamoni, the famous German film director. To depict the long-standing friendship between the artist and the passionate collector, we blended both names slightly into Max Ernst’s painting Delicate Arch on the cover. Looking at each other typographically, they are joined by the fantastic Ernstian landscape.

As homage to Peter Schamoni's cineastic techniques, used in his unparalleled documentaries, we made visual composings for the book’s endpapers and intertitles, by fading pictures and photographs of the exhibition. So you can discover the collection’s pieces—treasures of an extraordinary friendship—within a subtle surreal frame, an overture and finale beyond time and place.
