Staden – Kaupunki – City

The work based on the book ”Staden – Kaupunki” with poems by Bo Carpelan and photographs by Pentti Sammallahti, printed in 2006. In this book I was fascinated by their way of highlighting the sensitive and also the rough side of Helsinki. That is what I wanted to express in my work too.
2013, 156×156 mm, reindeer leather, acrylic painting with brush writing, long stitch binding with extra covers.
My work was selected and honoured book in the Nordic Bookbinding 2013 exhibition.
