PHOTOBOOK: STYLE & STRATEGY
Although we live in a digital age there is more attention for the paper photo book then ever before.

On the net we are constantly in contact with the rest of the world. We still have fully embrace and adjust to this new frontier in visual communication. The paper photo book represents solidity, something we can literarily hold on to. It is a tangible object and, despite being a reproduction, it has the aura of the original object, in this case the photograph. The contemporary photo book can be seen as a visual novel. It is with this in mind that graphic design agency Heijdens Karwei designs their photography books.
