Book, 115 x 175mm, 104 pages, debased foil stamped text on cover, hardcover. Graphic design by My Hellsten.

Graphic design for the volume »Det förlorade brevet; Kappan« by Nikolaj Gogol (1809-1852), Bokförlaget Tranan. Two long short stories written by one of the classic Russian literature’s champions. The typeface selected for the cover and inlay is a modern interpretation of a classic Bodoni, and goes well with the books origin, as typefaces designed by the Didot family had a great influence on Cyrillic typography.
