Celebrating Words With Pictures
Christoph Niemann’s latest book The Paper is a wordless tribute to the most important safeguard against tyranny we’ve got: Journalists. “The series started when I was asked to do the daily drawings for the ‘A’ section of The New York Times (AD Andrew Sondern),” says Niemann. “I had done a lot of extra ideas, and even after we were done with the month I just kept going.” He published the book, designed by Ariane Spanier, through his publishing arm, Abstractometer Press.
All proceeds go to Reporters Sans Frontieres (Reporters Without Borders). As Niemann writes: “The world is facing countless pressing issues. I don’t know how to solve them, but I’m convinced that in order to find out, we need a press that can ask the relevant questions, without fear of threats, persecution and violence. We need to protect reporters who take risks to shine light into the darkest corners of the world and bring us the truth about sensitive subjects involving our health, our safety and our geopolitical environment. RSF [has been] fighting for this since 1985.” To learn more and support them further, visit www.RSF.org.
