I interned at Studio Parasto Backman with Sally Apelmo, and worked on creating Svensk Bokkonst’s catalogue for 2021. Svensk Bokkonst (Swedish Book Art Award) is an annual award that celebrates book art.

Sally and I worked with finding graphic elements in the selected books to translate into a pattern that would be used both inside and outside of the catalogue.

“The graphic design is a tribute to book art and to the ornament’s given place in a contemporary context. Based on specific historical books from The Royal Library’s archive, we have been inspired by how they back in the days used the front cut in a tactile and artistic way – focusing on ways to bring the craft into a present context.”
