In case you’re not aware we really love books here at It’s Nice That. We get sent loads each week by lovely people all over the world and sometimes, when the mood takes us, we even go out to a shop and hand over hard cash in exchange for printed matter. It’s the smell that does it for us (plus carrying a book around will make you look VERY intelligent); there’s literally nothing finer that the unique aroma of a freshly printed, newly-opened book.
Except for two freshly printed newly-opened books, which is what Lina Forsgren realised when designing this beautiful package for photographer Anders Krisár. Instead of compiling words and images into one single volume, Lina created two publications, one of images and the other of text, all exquisitely packaged in a bespoke archival box. This unusual format allows Anders’ images the space they deserve, spreading across pages and onto the cover with total abandon while the supporting texts are compiled into a cloth-bound tome with an altogether more serious appearance. If only more books came in pairs.
