Ich bin auf See

Wilfried Erdmann

Delius Klasing Verlag

Project description

A life's work in a slipcase

We are proud to have been commissioned by and to work closely with Delius Klasing Verlag to produce this special book for the single-handed sailor Wilfried Erdmann, who was the first German to sail around the world non-stop. While the publication was originally planned for Erdmann’s 80th birthday in April 2020, it had to be postponed to the beginning of 2021 due to the pandemic. And this is not the worst possible time, since all eyes are currently on the adventures of the sailing soloists in the Vendée Globe, the toughest single-handed regatta in the world, which also fascinates non-sailors.

The extraordinary media interest that Boris Herrmann’s regatta premiere is currently receiving was already achieved by Erdmann in 1968 with his first circumnavigation of the globe. A sensational achievement, considering the simple boat equipment with which Erdmann mastered the venture. His book „Ich bin auf See“ shows the fascination of sailing on 272 pages with numerous previously unpublished photos. Impressively, the pictures printed on uncoated paper convey the force of the waves, the experience of loneliness and the love of adventure. The hardcover with a box spine comes in a slipcase covered in lime grey and finished with blue hot foil. Visually simple, the anniversary book contains legendary content.
