A book design project made in a typography course I had when I did my exhcange at ArtEZ in The Netherlands. The goal was to make a book, containing a text about algebra for children, and this book was not to be bound by glue, staples, thread, etc. The way I solved this was to fold the pages into each other, in a way where it could hold itself together. I wanted the book to be exciting, playful and colourful, as it was a text for children, without making it “childish”. I used different coloured paper for this, and kept the typography straight forward and more serious, while playing around with the placement of the words and texts. Part of the text is folded inside the book, so you have to unfold the pages to read the whole thing. Each page can be folded out into a poster. 

You can watch a video of the book at the bottom of the page. 

I am a graphic designer and illustrator who lives in Bergen, and works as a risograph technician, teaching design and art students the process and technique of printing with a risograph, at Faculty of fine art, music and design (KMD), UiB. In May 2020 I finished a bachelor degree in visual communication at KMD. I love the ocean (even though I am afraid of it), collect old photographs and books, and enjoy drinking tea and having a cat on my lap.
