THE DEAD SOULS
This is yet another Artefacts notebook that demonstrate the Studio’s creative and technological skills.
It’s a veritable literary artefact — the notebook is designed as a burnt manuscript of the second volume of «Dead Souls» by Nikolai Gogol. Thanks to its sophisticated printing technology it creates a complete illusion of a manuscript («rukopis») damaged by the fire. Burned sheets are bound in a block. The design uses calligraphy imitating Gogol’s handwriting.
Despite its fragile appearance, the notebook is quite practical and can be used for jotting down and drawing.
