Berlin per se is one of a kind, with a genuine artistic flair, making it perfect for collectors. The high-quality production has much to offer in terms of materials, colours and extravagant processing techniques. It’s not a “nice gesture” – but a true message delivered from the city on the Spree. And all this on a personable level, with a good dose of humour and self-irony, intentional or otherwise. A guide for anyone interested in approaching this unmistakable city.
A book always tells a story... Yes, that’s right. Berlin per se recounts anecdotes on history, art and culture, culinary specialties, well-known children of the city, inventions and the Berlin residents themselves. With a precise observational power and instinctive feel for the true characteristics of the city, this book presents the reader with the real face of Berlin – perceptible anytime and everywhere in this modern metropolis. A collection of essays on a very special city, which should take its rightful place on every bookshelf.
