The publications »Zahlen, bitte!« and »Zahlen, bitte!!« collect the column by Florian Klenk (editor-in-chief Falter) and Konrad Pesendorfer (former Chief Statistics Austria), which has been published in the weekly newspaper »Falter« between 2016 and 2019. A short interview on an Austria-specific topic is juxtaposed with a matching infographic. Part of the task was to translate the different graphics of Statistics Austria in book form. All infographics are constructed on the same (visible) square, grid. Different textures of line and dot patterns allow shades of gray in monochrome printing.
The entire publication is produced from the same pink/green paper – cover, header as well as core. The color and feel of the material allude to the appearance of file folders. Due to the exaggerated objectivity of the one-colored book body, the medium book is also questioned as a container of truth.
