This book is about a mother and her baby. Jorinde is a young mother living in a secluded world with her newborn. Ellen Korth photographed her, collected a series of Madonnas and wrote a children's poem. Together with designer -SYB- she found this form for it. The ultra-fine pages of this book provide a glimpse of the very secluded, the very private, a haptic space for a modern-day Madonna. A godly symbol, or an archetype of earthly humanism? who is the 'real' Jorinde?
