Invisible Strings is an anthology of short stories and poems, each inspired by a photograph. It came into existence as a joint venture with the photographer Susan Petzold while contemplating the intriguing idea to find new ways in relating text and images. The finished e-book combines visual with contextual storytelling by interweaving high quality images with original stories and thus forming an interdependence between both arts. The friendship theme frames all pieces, whose awareness relies on the link between story and picture. The calendar layout supports this idea by arranging the pieces in pairs for each of the twelve months. Opposites and aspects of duality run through the entire book, underlining the friendship theme.
The advanced e-book is available for various devices. There is an EPUB version for iPad, iPod touch etc., Kobo readers, Sony readers and most other e-readers. For Kindle users, there is an advanced Mobi/KF8 version. The book partly lives off vibrant colours, which older Kindles will convert into grey scale; however, this version, it has been said, does not lose out at all.
A friendship is a strange thing,
hangs on a string,
an invisible string,
and might rip apart.
