The Sampans from Canton awarded by Svensk Bokkonst
“Magnificent work in 18th century style, in color tone and typography. The design dares to be consistent despite the repetitive nature of the visual material. The essay collection is set into the cover which gives an extra dimension. Beautiful and magnificent, with silk and gold, it tempts the reader like a praline box. ”
Such was the motivation from the jury. A big thank you to the book’s designer Patric Leo and the Gothenburg printing company who helped us create this wonderful book. Publisher Marika Stolpe was present and received the award.
