Studio Achermann. Acher Snowmann. Zurich: Studio Acherman, 2008. Illustrated boards with plastic sleeve, 20 by 25 cm, not paginated (40 pp.), illus. Near fine with minor rubbing on the plastic sleeve. A prospectus, if you could call it that, for Studio Achermann, a Zurich-based design firm, that produces books, catalogues, company reports, corporate identities, campaigns, etc. Snowmann utilizes a series of photographs of snowmen as a vehicle to introduce their staff, philosophy and clients. “The unknown client is watching us. What is he thinking? Is he gloating? Probably. Is he curious like a magpie? Certainly. Fear of approaching us? No way. Are we too expensive, too arrogant, too star fucking? Impossible. No guts, no success. Norisknofun. It’s like the very beautiful women, whom nobody dares to approach, because they are goddesses and we are pantpooping morons: the superladies go home all alone. This, dear friends, must not happen!” A Trojan horse of new art capitalism.
