Success at two design fronts

Maigret – Kootut kertomukset / The Most Beautiful Books of the Year 2015.

“True classics deserve a proper setting. The pipe cut in cover calico and its smoke saying “Maigret”: at the same time simple, clear and concentrated. Typesetting in both front and back cover is elegant, typography adds to the reading pleasure throughout.”

“A work, which power, simplicity and boldness stood out immediately – WOW! A minimalistic, fresh and luscious whole where art remains in the center. The marriage of black, red and white was crucial. A Brilliant choice of materials and the varnished images crowned the whole. Ageless visuality that fits anywhere.”
