'Leporello 1' consists of eighteen black-and-white photographs of a man holding a black staff in front of a light background. The sequence seems to depict movement, an effect enhanced by the concertina form as it is visible from all sides.

'Leporello 1' and 'Leporello 2' both make use of this same sequence of photographs, with the artist in each case creating a different overprint.

In 'Leporello 1', Ines von Ketelhodt overprints typography on to the photos. A text excerpt from Joachim Schumacher's 'Leicht 'gen Morgen unterwegs' is sprinkled across the pages, the text dismembered into lines, words or even single letters.
