Idea, conceptual design, text and layout —— in cooperation with Eva-Marie Uhl
The definition of the word backwards means usually the course of movement. But should you really determine that?
Park / Go / Drive / Move / Run / Fall / Row / Grade / Jump / Step / Count backwards.
Curved backwards, regression, bouncing backwards, revers turn, read backwards, revers direction, backspace, fail backwards, retroactive insurance, down counter. On the basis of this examples you could see how multifunctional the definition of the word backwards is.
But I don’t want to confuse you from the beginning. So grab the book turn it around and start with the usually meaning, the course of the movement.
