Maps By Christiane Becker
The evening is the best time for a little walk, just around the corner. The streets are calm, the people are at home and (… that’s the best, I admit it …) they turn their lights on! So you can see all that little stories of live behind the windows. And our cat? Feely is always very enthusiastic at the at the start, but she remembers her personal limits quite quickly. So only some big Meows follow me and a reproachful but relieved cat waits for me at the end. So we draw together a map about our walk in honour to that all-day-pleasures. And – as in every good map – there’s an unknown territory: the reign of the Grey Cat! (One day we’ve been there … but that is a story for another map!)
This place is special to me because it is my hometown Bremen, an old "Hansestadt" in the north of Germany. I love roaming around the city ... and I love to discover all the different typographic elements, at doors and walls and even on the ground. Join me on a typographic trail! A special guest on the map is the penguin - he's a grafitti at a housewall and was sprayed some years ago by my son Jonathan.
