Budden Brooks

Lucas Guizetti:

“For my thesis project “Buddenbrooks” I really wanted to indulge in all the possibilities that bookmaking has to offer. Pantone colours and embossing, as well as a bespoke book case, thread binding and format changes between volumes become quite a luxury when you’re not working for a well-paying client. Fortunately, in addition to my regular scholarship, the Studiestiftung provided me with generous private funding for this project, which helped me to produce the book exactly the way I wanted it.


I’m so happy it paid off, as it turned out to be one of my favourite projects so far.

The books and bookcase were produced in close collaboration with Copenhagen-based bookbinder Mmajgrens Bogbinderi. Thank you for working with me and listening to all my special requests!”
