Vögel von unten betrachten (“Viewing birds from below”) is a publication conceived by photo artist Mara Pollak, featuring footage found on the Web. The book was self-published in an edition of 50 copies and is available from the artist.
The book cover was initially typeset using the trial version of Charon, which doesn’t include umlauts or other special characters. That’s why I built myself a makeshift ‘Ö’ from ‘o’ and ‘e’. I later licensed the full version, but by then, the stacked umlaut had grown on me, and so I kept it — a happy accident!
