PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN IN FLEMISH, A LANGUAGE ALMOST NOBODY UNDERSTANDS!!! Gerard Herman was invited by "VTI Brugge" (a school for offset printmaking) to create an artist book the students would have difficulties printing, or at least it should be "complicated" or something… Gerard in turn invited Dennis Tyfus, who was intensely reading the interview series "Die zomer van Tien Om Te Zien" written by Mathias Danneels for Primo Magazine. Together Gerard Herman and Dennis Tyfus disinfected these interviews with their bare hands, leading to a collection of short poems. These poems were then accompanied by photos made by Dennis Tyfus' father Eduard Tyfus, who -during a stormy period in the 70's- was a hobby photographer, and who wasn’t aware of this fact. His photo's of parks and flowers perfectly fit to the schmoezerie this book is dripping with. This book is full of "graphic surprises", fold open posters, a poster of Joey Ramone with Matthias Danneels and a lot of words that should have been used more and better!
Limited to way too many copies, comes in either a red or a blue cover.
