BOOKS

For cover design – for print or an individual binding of a book – the approach is always from inside and out, to show the personality of the book’s content. The cover is the packaging of the product. Annika’s signature bindings have prints of images directly on leather. The following bindings were made for an exhibition at the Swedish Institute in Paris 2011.
