A photography book that breathes harmony and well-thought solutions from the cover on: the shade of the calico matches the cover print exceptionally well. This book is thoroughly spacious and peaceful. Pictures are full of colour and they have received enough room, the unpretentious typography allows them to tell the story by their own means. Materials are pleasant to touch and the choice of paper reproduces the colours beautifully. As a result the entire book is flawless and innovatively illustrated.
