The original dummy was shortlisted for the 2012 International Fotobook Festival and subsequently shown at Le Bal, Paris, and f-stop Festival, Leipzig. It was also selected for Photobookshow D in Helsinki and shortlisted for the Unpublished Dummy Award at Unseen Photo Festival, Amsterdam.

Thanks again to Markus Schaden for suggesting the unique folding structure and to Harvey Benge and to Wolfgang Zurborn for help with editing and sequencing!

100 copies, signed and numbered. € 23 plus shipping (€ 2 Germany, € 4 International). E-mail me at g.harhoff(at) if you’re interested.

Final test

Assembling some test copies of my upcoming self-published “Pelikan”-booklet – didn’t expect stitching 250 gsm paper to be that hard!
