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 design was provided by Sophia Goedecke, using the typeface Charon by Matthieu Visentin:

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!
