Bookart in Sweden

I have been a few but intensive days in southern Sweden to visit Dalia my lithuanian colleague and friend who lives there and who both can boast with the title bookbinder and supplier to the royal swedish court.

But do not let yourself be fooled by her gentle and delicate features. Dalia is a woman with pure tiger gasoline pumping in her veins! Never have I come so quickly from one place to another – and never has it been in such a precious vessel like this blue Jaguar. (Guess it’s not possible to even think of driving slowly in such a car ???)

Anyway, here comes a few views from my recent days – from Dalias workshop where she just made me a notebook with my name engraved in gold,from a visit to a taxidermist colleague of hers and to a wonderful exhibition of artists’ books – or konbtnärsgjorda böcker as it is called in Swedish – at Lunds Konsthall.

I feel very grateful and completely filled up with inspiration for future projects.
