A work of uncompromising craftsmanship, where all aspects of book design are harnessed to convey the content. Disciplined layout and typography, the unapologising darkness in pictorial, illustratory dramaturgy and the choices in materials all speak the same language, harshly poetic. The cover design including the hidden surprise condense the artist’s themes. In this book the graphic form is a creation rising to orbit on its own right, and yet always and unfalteringly culminating in Tuomas A. Laitinen.
