Finding Hygge

– Out of Print –

open book

Accompanied by a vial of fragrance, Finding Hygge by Ishbel McCann is a stab bound, hardcover book grapples with the Danish concept of Hygge. The artist sought to create a piece that would embody coziness. From the padded cover to the warm color palette, linocut sketches and letterpress text, this artist’s book with its accompanying vial of fragrance is meant to give the reader an understanding of a concept that does not precisely translate into English. Letterpress printed on kitakata paper. The edition size is fifteen copies. 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
