Lead Image

It’s no secret that I have a thing for books. I have more than I need, and more than I have read as my piles of “to read” keep growing. And this poster is a beautiful depiction of what my bookshelves look like—vertical, horizontal, mixed-up, and carefully placed.

Project Description

A poster dedicated to the space, where our favorite stories are kept safe. Our bookshelves shape our virtual "spaces", where the voices of our favorite authors and their characters are placed next to each other, creating in that way unique "maps" of stories. For every bookshelf there is a different navigation between the collective past, the imaginary future and our relevant experiences in the present.

Production Lesson(s)

We choose the method of screen printing in order to find a connection between the traditional book binding and printing techniques. The high resistibility in time makes a screenprinted poster a valuable artifact, just like a good old art book. The 70x100cm poster was screen printed with 2 colors on 10 main color combinations on a variety of papers and materials. In general we produced almost 40 different combinations of colors and paper in total of 100 + signed and numbered prints. That led to many limited editions and experimental results. The large format was decided, in order to achieve the maximum similarity with a real bookshelf size as possible. ”
