WAM

books

A Mozart’s letter to his mother, printed on elephant dung paper. A poem as a bilingual book (DE-IT) and a knick-knack in one. It has beem presented in a Book Art Congress in Louxembourg, as it develops vertically instead horinzotally as normal accordion books do.

The plot:
During a tour through Europe, young Wolfgang writes to his mother a poem about dirt and farts, teasing and joking all the time.

My idea:
Putting the poem directly on elephant dung, together with a collection of (printed) Mozart’s stamps from all over the world; if you open it on a plane surface, it stands forming the letters WAM – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
