    Booklet front page

    In the early nineties, Matthias Marx and Paul Ludwig — two pastors from Eppelborn, Saarland — were travelling through France. Accidentaly, in the small town of Angers in the Pays de la Loire, they stumbled upon an exhibition of tapestry master Jean Lurçat. To say they were hooked would be a huge understatement:
    Today, twenty-five years later, their hometown hosts a museum dedicated solely to the work of Jean Lurçat. In August 2017, the museum — headed by Matthias Marx — celebrated its silver jubilee.

    The bilingual (German/French) publications, designed by Patrick Bittner and Manuel Wesely, use Alverata Irregular by Gerard Unger and then yet unreleased Clip by Bold-Decisions.
