Award: Wood Pencil
Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2012
Michael Held was a man of letters. He recorded his thoughts in notebooks where he made a collage of them with tickets to exhibitions and all kinds of small treasures: there are photos clipped from magazines, of items of clothing, bicycles, tables and above all houses. This book presents his work in the same way that his diaries are arranged: as a multifaceted architectural landscape comprising narrative elements, drawings and colour. The material for this monograph of his work – a collection of plans, computer drawings, sketches and photos – has been assembled in blank ‘diaries’.
