The first Eyes as Big as Plates book featured portraits, field notes, essays and behind-the-scenes stories from the first six years of this project’s production. All 176 pages were printed with eagle-eyed precision in Gothenburg in Sweden and bound together with love at the last bookbindery in Norway. Each one of these hardcover books was hand- finished with summer leaves on the front and back covers. Designed by Greger Ulf Nilson and published by Forlaget Press, the edition of 2000 books was brought to life by a roaring crowdfunding success in 2016. The book was published in 2017 and was shortlisted for the Paris Photo / Aperture Foundation – Photobook Awards the same year, as one of 20 books from nearly 1000 entries in the ‘First Photobook’ category. It also won Grafill’s prize for the best cover in Norway’s Årets Vakreste Bøker.
The first volume is now sold out, but our second successfully completed crowdfunding campaign secured the realisation of our new book Eyes as Big as Plates 2!
