The need to bring one’s own life story into book form is obviously something important to a lot of older people – also those, who tend to stay away from established cultural life. This is the target group of Edition Unik with a carefully developed, facet-rich service, which boils down to an encouragement to write. The framework created here for the production of a book offers a practical aid. It’s not solely the final product that takes centre stage – a cleanly designed, high quality book. The focus of Edition Unik, which also impresses with its comparably low costs, is far more geared to the actual process of book production and the experience associated with this. An all-round successful project, which gains its strength from combining social and design concerns.
