Amir Steinberg

Amir Steinberg is a visual communications student from Germany, his visualisation of Red Riding Hood 'Ladle Rat Rotten Hut' which is a version of "Little Red Riding Hood" re-written with similar-sounding words substituting for the original folk tale, as part of an ersatz language called Anguish Languish.

The collages are based on the odd words used for the characters' names and descriptions (for example, "groin murder" instead of "grandmother" which meant the inclusion of wonderfully surreal elements like bottles of ketchup, butter and floppy discs.
The book was printed using Cyanotype and Linocut in a palette of red and blue.
