Svensk Bokkonst

Happy to have designed this year’s book for Svensk Bokkonst/Swedish Book Award.
The graphic design is a tribute to book art and to the ornament’s given place in a contemporary context. Based on specific historical books from The Royal Library’s archive, we have been inspired by how they back in the days used the front cut in a tactile and artistic way – focusing on ways to bring the craft into a present context.
