Life Goals - illustrated books in collaboration with Stationery Stories
Goal nr 1: go to Cap Ferrat ASAP; goal nr 2: get a hold of this book!
Whilst brainstorming for this book, we agreed that we needed it to allude to some sort of target setting - whether that was personal, work related or otherwise. The meeting was veering towards a To-Do List style cover, when Sally from Stationery Stories suddenly exclaimed "let's depict something to aspire to". Genius! Having both spent our childhood summers on the Côte d'Azur, we settled for this gorgeous bay in Cap Ferrat, dreamy enough in itself but also the location of Sally's wedding in 2016. From there, the South of France references came at us fast and furious - a basket full of artichokes and flowers from the market (inside front cover); an anis-flavoured drink (inside back cover); Picasso's iconic Breton shirt with a quote by the artist himself....
The cover consists of thick textured paper in an elegant shade of cream; the inside pages (72 sheets, ie 144 pages), are cream coloured with a dot grid pattern and gold edges.
Laid and printed at our partners, a family-owned paper mill in Florence (Italy).
The books in our Stationery Stories collaboration are covered in textured paper with a gouache artwork printed on the inside and outside, front and back.
