As a devoted follower of Bernd Kuchenbeiser’s “A Book A Day” on Twitter, where he presented books that in his opinion stood out, I jumped at the chance to collaborate with a designer whose work I admired when he was looking for someone to help him move the content to its own domain. My role was taking his design and translating it into a website. In addition, I was Bernd’s sparring partner for the various details we obsessed over during the course of this project.
After many enriching conversations (which usually started out with an elaborate look at the design details and ended with discussions about contemporary music, office furniture or Tarkovsky’s films) and lots of hard work, we launched the site in time for Christmas. It features a responsive design, high-resolution images, and amazing books waiting to be discovered. If you find something worthy, you are invited to submit your good book to the growing collection, as well.
