The artist book, Folded Spirits, was co-published by the artist and David Krut Projects, Johannesburg, Cape Town & New York, 2012.

Contains nine hand printed lithographs and linocuts by Jürgen Partenheimer completed with an occasional watercolour and pencil drawing together with eight poems by Lebogang Mashile. The poems and text were hand-printed from aluminium plates in Gill Sans with different point sizes, selected and positioned by the artist with the generous consent of the poet.

The solander box for the book was created by Lunetta Bartz, Johannesburg and produced by Buchbinderei Adolphs, Düsseldorf, using a colour linoleum cut by Jürgen Partenheimer printed on 145 gsm Zerkall paper.

The dimensions of the book are 48 x 38 x 3cm.
