Katherina is also a book artist and illustrator. Both collaborators contributed equally to the book, working out the story and the graphics together. The narrative is a variation on Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth, focusing on the arrival at the center.

Otto took photographs of bus shelter roof tops from the window of a No 38 Routemaster. The sequence is in the same order of the route from Victoria to Hackney. All the graphics are separated into process colors which are slightly edited and separately inkjet printed.
