Dear friends of SALZ-Verlag,
we are very happy to end the publishing year 2017 with the release of the SALZ Edition #10 titled “BURSCHEN” by Paul Pretzer, as well as the new artist book “studio #01” by Silvio Zesch:
The artist’s book “BURSCHEN”, which appears as #10 in the steadily growing SALZ Edition since 2011, once again enriches the book series with something very special. Paul Pretzer’s description of one of his pictures in an interview with Carolin Quermann in his last catalog: “… something between disgusting, pitiable and a little funny” probably does also apply much to the collection of figures portrayed in various ways in the new book “BURSCHEN”. Once again, Pretzer combines collage, drawing and painting in a playfully light-looking way. The book thus wonderfully illustrates Paul Pretzer’s general picture making and gathers fellows of all kinds coleur.

With “studio # 01” Silvio Zesch opens a new series of books that combines black-and-white insights into the studio with colorful original graphic screen prints. The book designed by Zesch follows a strict concept – the graphic becomes more of a kind of explanatory moment than that of an independent form. The 4 embedded silkscreen prints are excerpts of the opposite images in original size and color. However, it will be exciting to see which artists will next grant insight into their studio through the book, whether and how the series will grow, and how each artist individual will make the book.
