CBG-424 under the forest cover, is the book of my correspondent master thesis project, which I finished by February 2016.
(22cm x 14cm)
This book is bound by hand, using a coptic binding technique. The book paper is a chlorine-free, environmentally friendly product by BIOTOP, I could not find out from which forests it originates. The front cover of the book is made out of pine which I received from a carpenter near Vuokkiniemi (a folklore village in Karelia, Russia). The back cover, meanwhile, is made from industrial birch plywood that originates from Finnish forests, and which was bought in Helsinki, Finland. I made the lettering on the wood cover by using a pyrography pen.

This photo album was bound for the special occasion of a wedding, and the colors were specifically chosen according to the taste of the bride. The pages are made from blue paperboard, and thin transparent paper is used for the in-between layers to protect the wedding photographies later added to the album.The first and last page are made from ornamental golden paperboard, to frame and decorate the memories of this one special day. Birch plywood has been used as the album’s cover, and lettered by the help of a wood burning pen with a quirky typography, telling the bridal pair’s initials on the front cover and the wedding date on the back cover.

A notebook which offers plenty of space and pages for thoughts, sketches and big ideas! It is bound with waxed polyester thread, the back of the book is not glued which makes it very smooth in handling. The cover is made from 3mm thick carton, laminated with beautifully patterned paper.
This small notebook fits into every handbag or pocket, so all the big ideas can be quickly noted and captured in every situation. An old Finnish school atlas provided me with the colorful images for the book cover.
