BIBLIOTEK NORDICA

HYBRYNORPEDIA was created for the Bibliotek Nordica project,

run by two wonderful women Imi Maufe and Megan Adie.

The HYBRYNORPEDIA is an encyclopædia of nordic hybrids in which flora meets fauna and leads to a new creations of imaginary creatures living peaceful lives in cold northern lands, forests and waters.

 

It's the art book illustrated with hand-carved and hand-printed rubber blocks with a little touch of digital print. Printed on the natural paper. Bookbinded with a black thread on a sewing machine.
