Cover of the small broschure I produced

While reading Max Frisch's Novel »Montauk« I was deeply intrigued with his description of the weekend-getaway with the much younger woman to the rather dull off-season coastline just an hour north of new york. The eventlessness of the trip and Frisch's constant deviations to earlier chapters of his life added to my fascination with the book.
 For quite some time my thougts would trail back to the novel and the unapologetic way, Frisch looks back onto his life and bygone relationships while having an affair with a young women, working for his US publisher.

 To really wrap up my reading experience I decided to start a series of illustrations, losely based on the passages I found most intriguing.
 I then experimented with different ways to merge the drawings with excerpts of the book until finally chosing a bracket that reflects the bureaucratic vibe of the old german federal republic, that Max Frisch's work always seems to radiate.

TLDR: I liked Max Frisch's »Montauk« so much, especially the descriptions of off-season upstate New York, that I decided to illustrate some of my favourite scenes.
