The 148-page art book 'KOBES' is inspired by an old notebook of my grandfather, Prof. Dr. Kobes, who spent his lifetime researching and determining of new butterfly species as a hobby besides his job as a professor of dentistry. The book's narrative is led by the naive grandson who never had a real idea of what he was doing all the time and is now trying to understand the meanings of the technical language that is used by the expert.
