Concept of the publication, design and layout, edit and sequencing and taking care of the production.
Museum Meditations is a small publication made in conjunction with Jorma Puranen’s exhibition at the Aboa Vetus Ars Nova Museum in Turku, Finland.
For this book I used bulky yellowish Arctic Volume that has a nice uncoated feeling but still allows a superb printing quality. Although the paper is already warm in tone it still accepts a warm printed background tone on every page. As a contrast to that I used dark blue Geltex Silks for the front and end papers. The book begins with a three spread collage-type selection of small illustrations and photographs followed by larger photographic works.
The format of this book is quite close to A4-size still being a bit smaller and shorter in size. Although being so close to the most used paper format the feeling of the book is unusual; it feels surprisingly narrow and tall.
The essay text Path North by Alistair Hicks is set with Nexus Serif font that has a relatively large point size. It is beautiful and easy to read.
