New is old is new – especially so at 'nichtneu', the website which offers a second-hand guide to children's things. Everything which for reasons of space doesn't fit into the 'Brockiführer', Zurich's second-hand guide (2007), appears in postcard format in this little book. Over many years textile designer Aline Ozkan has acquired a vast amount of know-how in the field of the second hand, which she regularly publishes in an updated version as the 'Brockiführer' and the 'Childrens' Second-Hand Guide to Zurich' (2008).
The 'Childrens' Second-Hand Guide to Zurich' presents 20 of Zurich's best locations for second-hand kids' things with a photo, a description of the products offered, size, directions on how to get there, opening hours, website, background and opinions and tips from the author. The foreword has been written by Carmen Amrein, who is in charge of a day-care centre in Zurich.
1st. edition, 2008/09 in A6 format (postcard size), 64 pages, monocolour printing in blue, cover made of vintage cotton.
