Grandma’s Book is a peculiar project printed on request of the popular Russian performance artist and clown Slava Polunin. He wanted to honor his grandmother and the lace she used to create. Besides the regular hardback cover copies, we produced also a hundred copies special edition with a particular cover: the cloth cover is entirely embroidered by hand. SiZ was able to recreate this effect, that is also printed within the book, thanks to an Italian craft laboratory that directly embroidered on the Setalux, which is the fabric used for the cover. The book has then also a particular kind of binding, it is in fact in Italian called Bodoniana, with open spine.
