With its long bookmark this challenging book is also a beautiful object. The text, in two languages, is placed on the pages like a riddle and leads the reader on a trip out of a labyrinth. The cover’s embossed column hollows are a touching insight.

As well as a fluent reading experience, Rosa Liksom’s Cabin no. 6 is easy on the eye, a book which is suitable to hold and which fits easily into a handbag. The harmonious format and skillfully chosen typography are freshly modern. The picture compilation on the overlapping inner covers open up a window to the Soviet period – illustrating the atmosphere rather than the text.

Destinies is a book to be browsed through on whose every page you will find what you are looking for. You can grab it from your bookshelf and give it to a friend. Or shove it in the pocket of your duffle coat, read a few lines, lightly stroke the rough calico spine, open, close. Continue later.

The name on the cover and the unfinished affect of the contents is stylishly visualized. The use of black and white, thick strickethroughs and plain typography is effective. The walruses spurting from underneath the dustjacket are a more than enjoyable surprise. The controlled and well considered visualization continues in the typography inside.

The pleasant dustjacket, intriguing cover, suprising front page – you feel obliged to open the book – and then the calm body text, bright classical double page spreads, careful typesetting, progress naturally… Did it say anything? Yes it did, read it for yourself.
