    Fons Hickmann M23: Semperoper Yearbook 2013/14

Fons Hickmann continue their great work with Semperoper for 2013/14 yearbook

Posted by James Cartwright,

Last year studio Fons Hickmann M23 produced a beautiful yearbook for Dresden’s Semperoper, interspersing beautiful photographs and engravings of the city’s history with bold geometric shapes; transforming a severe monochrome landscape with bursts of colour and texture. This year they’ve done it again, moving the concept one step further with geometric collages of Dresden fused with other locations across the globe – creating strange patterns that function as optical illusions. As ever, the accompanying design is first rate but it’s the commissioned images that really steal the show.
