Monika Gold, Head of the Bachelor’s Programme in Graphic Design (Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts) initiated the exhibition “The Most Beautiful Books” in St. Petersburg 2016. Galina Metelichenko-Soboleva organised the event. I was invited by the Pro Helvetia as a jury member for talks and to give a workshop. It was an amazing stay. We visited Mikhail Karasik amongst others who showed us his collection of magazines and books. I especially like the small black and white Malewitch book. And we visited the Repin house and studio.
