What skills do we need in the permanent upheaval of our present time? What virtues are we dependent on in an age of revaluation of many values and constant acceleration? This topic is about smart approaches to the new conditions of existence that we can shape ourselves. Seven authors present their perspectives on the demands that the 21st century places on us.
Designed by Huelsenberg Studio for Nicolai Publishing, this book series is adopting a minimalistic but striking identity. The slipcase, covers and chapters opening are typeset with the blackest weight of Suisse Int’l layered over a deep sea blue, a vivid green, or a gradient between the two, depending on its position. Following the publisher’s logo, the text content is set in Suisse Works. The Chinese title of Gert Scobel’s Nicht Denken uses PingFang.
In 2019, the seven books were awarded Most Beautiful German Books (Die Schönsten deutschen Bücher) in the General Literature category.
