Makis Haustierbuch

by Maki Shimizu

Maki Shimizu is a young artist from Tokyo. When she came to Germany she found a book at the attic of a youth hostel in Southern Germany, one amongst many rejected books:  “Das Haustierbuch. Vom Wesen der Schönheit und dem Nutzen der nah bei uns lebenden Tierarten“ written by Paul Eipper in 1955.

At that time Maki’s knowledge of the German language was not that developed, she could not understand the literary part of the book. But she enjoyed the book that much that she started to made drawings and prints of the photographs and finally typewrote the whole texts – word by word. In addition she added some of her own paintings to this new addition.

This book is only available in German language.

/// Press comments

"Die Sprache Eippers ist inzwischen sogar für uns eigentümlich, dennoch tippte Shimizu Wort für Wort die Kommentare des Autors ab. Vorangestellt hat sie als neuen literarischen Teil ihre Deutschlandgeschichte."
