One of the main challenges was how to transform the conventional notebook into a more intriguing and compelling object, that would fascinate and amaze. It was also important that the book didn’t come across as a portfolio, but rather as an artistic object and introduction to Veikko Kähkönen’s work.
We took an unconventional approach, considering the subject matter, by hiding the photographs behind a “veil”, using slightly transparent paper and a Japanese binding method. This way each spread holds a hidden secret behind the pages that can be discovered, while the book still keeps its functionality.
