Die Nibelungen Franz Keim
Luigi Castiglioni — 2012
An abbreviated version of Franz Keim’s saga, typeset by Otto Eckmann and illustrated by Carl Otto Szeschka, this edition is one of the most convincing examples of modern book design, where all elements play a part in the global artistic vision.
The design of this binding by Luigi Castiglioni is a luxurious emanation of the book and offers a physical immersion into the world of the Nibelungen.
