Bibeb's interviews 2011

Each book of this series of four books includes an inteview by Bibeb, a leading Dutch interviewer from the past, also called 'the mother of the depth-interview'. When reading a few interviews she did, i became aware of the fact that she describes the characteristics of the person she is interviewing 'between the lines'. She observes him and his habits securely, and describes it with a kind of tenderness.

I devided the interviews in two layers and added transparant pages to the books to highlight what she actually added to the interview, to show her technique, and therefore the reason why her interviews became so highly appreciated. I wrote the lines and words of the second layer by hand, because what Bibeb adds to the interview, makes it really vulnerable.
