The Absence of the Train Driver Sketches

The book contains 14 track plans or sketches my father-in-law made. I defined the sequence here because the original drawings weren't dated. It starts with plans for »Anlage 1«, followed by one intermediate and then all »Anlage 2«-plans I found. The last two are very reduced, maybe not finished, but in this edit, they also simulate a fade, like fading memories, a fade into the blue of distance…

All cyanotypes were reproduced and printed on a fragile Japanese Papier, which very well simulates the old blueprint technique. Everything is covered by a cardboard envelope, reminding of an old loose-leaf binder.
