Excerpt from the text
of editor Timo Valjakka

"Zakarias prints from the wooden blocks as they are. He endows the insignificant, useless objects with a new dignity by transfernng the story drawn on the wood's surface onto paper, and into the realm of art. Zakarias himself remains discretely in the background. He is like a Medieval printer, a mediator of knowledge. His no-nonsense aesthetic is akin to the harsh way of the homeless and the refugee; nothing is thrown away and anything that can be reused is kept for later."
