A carefully tailored book
The book design builds on colours, patterns and the tactile feel from the photographs presented in the book. The fabric covering the book’s spine signifies techniques of fashion design and tailoring. The title is embossed on the cover and silk screened on the spine for a sense of tactility and craftsmanship. The cover features the artist Count Indigo. The pattern on the artist’s shirt is transferred to the endpapers of the book, and set in the same shade as the fabric. The layout is set with photographs gravitating towards the outer margins, leaving generous space in the inner margins. This effect is empowering the photographers active use of ‘negative space’ in his work, as well as amplifying the documentary aspects of the photographs.
The book includes two texts by the photographer, Andreas Helland. At the end of the book you’ll find useful links to people featured in the book, and other sites related to the vintage scene. Read more about the photographer and the story behind the book.
The book is available in selected bookstores.
