A book with sublime forms and new findings. It shows a thorough understanding of nature, not by imitating it but by expressing it in a highly personal visual language. The editors managed to capture a true experience of the Finnish artist and designer and his work by using photographs made by Wirkkala, by photographing his trained and experienced hands, and by including sketches and technical drawings. The graphic design and text editing were done by Juhani Pallasmaa.
