A3-size, spiral bounding. 32 pages of collages on plastic tracing film

The idea for this book is to show the similarity between dull architecture and boring bureaucratic forms and letterheads etc. The forms have been filled up by drawing windows and other architectural details into the tables, so that each form represents a building. The collages have been pasted on the half-transparent tracing film to create the feeling and perspective of a city shrouded in smog. The book is based on Russian forms from different periods and the city image created in the book is definitely Russian. Finnish, German and English “boring books” will follow. I would be happy to receive any empty forms and tables you might come across.
