BOOK OF THE DAY
The Arsenic Eaters (signed)
by Simon Brugner
Have you ever heard of the arsenic eaters? No surprise if not, since the people, who practiced this habit - for example in parts of Styria, Austria - kept it a well hidden secret for centuries. Simon Brugner decided to go after the myth and took the road to see the places where these people lived to uncover the truth. The first part of his photobook is an artistic documentary of this journey with lively coloured photographs and with additional material of historical pictures about the people and places he visited. The second part of the book is a collection of historical accounts on the topic, carried out in scholarly quality, making the book a highly exciting reading as well as a pleasurable guide to mountains of Styria and beyond.
