Willi Haldemann, "Pictorial Supplement …": "This order book documents my independent work as an engineer for building engineering since 1984. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to present the 1000 tasks, which Haldemann Basel handled successfully until 2012, in the form of this book. This book was hand composed and printed in six colors on a hand proofing press.

"Ordering parties can find their specific order using the enclosed booklet. The order number, project with site, building type, ordering party, project completion, and executed project phases are listed in annual tables. You can find supplementary information and pictures about the production process of this book starting from page 27 of the booklet.

"This order book (The 1001 Tasks) was produced as a leporello. As a result, the information chart extending over several pages with the 1001 tasks can be viewed in different ways. On one hand, you can leaf through the pages as in a conventional book (the individual tasks with the color areas composed of individual brass pieces and the topic areas with the color symbols composed of lines are in the foreground), and on the other hand the content pages (after removal of the dust jacket) can be folded out as a single strip of paper.

"Experience the 1000 individual rectangles with printed symbols as a colorful building engineering panorama."

Haldemann Basel is an engineering company for building engineering providing objective consulting services.
