Photographs by Mårten Lange
Published by Farewell Books
6" X 8.75"
44 pages, black and white, laser printed and perfect bound

The crisp photography of Mårten Lange's book Woodland is the first project out from Swedish, small-press publisher, Farewell Books (friends of Kasino A4, I think). The book itself embodies one of my favorite kinds of design - low-tech, yet completely elegant. The bright white paper, classic serif typography and printing method of laser printing perfectly present Lange's tangled, high contrast photographs of forests. Lange pushes an otherwise sentimental subject matter into a chaotic abstraction. The branches here are reminiscent of a tangle of amplifier cords - nature transformed into man-made disarray, yet retaining an austere beauty.
