Published on the occasion of the traveling exhibition of the same name in Switzerland. A collection of photographs of balls taken by the avant-garde Swiss photographer Jakob Tuggener, which he originally arranged into a maquette for a book that was never published. This edition, based on the maquette, is true to his wish for a "pure photo book without text," with critical essays only in the included booklet. An impressive work of the European photographic avant-garde.
