Franzobel has been awarded numerous prizes, including the 1995 Bachmann Prize, the 2002 Schnitzler Prize and the 2005 Nestroy Prize. Lois Lammerhuber is an internationally renowned photographer and publisher. Lois Lammerhuber has been voted world-best photographer three times.

Review:

'Sumptuous, extra-large coffee-table book with readily understandable texts.' Bild der Wissenschaft 'This coffee-table book looks like breaking a record. Its two-page photographs demonstrate that the Large Hadron Collider is the mother of all machines. For those who could never be on site, photographer Peter Ginter provides an impressive and aesthetic look into the World Machine.' Physik Journal 'It took fifteen years to complete the 27 kilometres long 'Large Hadron Collider' at the European research centre CERN. For the entire fifteen years, photographer Peter Ginter accompanied and documented the construction of the LHC and created breathtaking pictures of the technology and the people dedicated to uncovering the last secrets of particle physics.' Frankfurter Allgemeine
