Jan von Holleben - The Blueberry Machine
Photographer Jan von Holleben and author Monte Packham produced a book for children in which young Olav, a master inventor, spends the day building fantastical machines for purpose and pleasure only to discover the most useful and creative machine of all. Set in the inspiring Norwegian landscape, the story is told in lively, playful verse. The photographic illustrations are themselves a kind of invention, each made with a photo print and assembled objects that are re-photographed to create a convincing final image. Offset printed using a wet-on-dry process, the book is typeset in Andersen, a typeface designed by Thierry Fétiveau for young and dyslexic readers.
