At the heart of this Tord Boontje monograph were 120 full-bleed plates of the industrial product designer’s work, photographed
in the forest around his southern France studio by Annabel Elston and Angela Moore.
The book included The Wednesday Collection, a range of glassware decorated with animal shapes formed by pushing nails into soft hand-blown glass. In direct response to this technique, nails were used to puncture the book’s margins – a twist on conventional die-stamping.
The construction of the cover combined a hand-crafted feel with a machine aesthetic by printing the colour image underneath an open-weave mull – a cloth more commonly used to strengthen book spines.
