project type: bookbinding
project format(s): Sketchbook
In early 2019 I was lucky enough to see an amazing exhibition by the designer duo Sagmeister & Walsh in the MAK Gallery Vienna called ‘Beauty' celebrating beauty as a form of an expression. For a memorabilia I bought a set of 3 decorative wrapping papers designed for the exhibition by the artists themselves. I knew I would use them one day for that special project.

‘Beauty collection' are 3 sets of 3 sketchbooks, celebrating 3 different bookbinding techniques, 3 individual decorative wrapping papers and 3 different book sizes. A traditional A4 size using hardcover binding with the combination of book-cloth on the spine. A semi B6 size using open spine coptic stitch binding, And finally the smallest one using saddle stitch binding in a B5 size. All text blocks consist of 100 gsm Arcoprint Milk Fedrigoni Blank Papers and that special exhibition decorative paper on the covers, which makes the sketchbooks very precious and unique.
