Spinalishandboken

Is there a rule that medicine books have to look boring? No. This handbook is the medical clinic Spinali’s ‘Magnus Opus’ and covers what happens in the body when a spinal cord injury occur. The binding is a so-called ‘naked spine’ and is illustrated by the renowned artist Jesper Waldersten. But the best part about the design is perhaps something entirely different…

The book is printed in black and orange and illustrated by Jesper Waldersten. The binding of the book, a so-called ”naked spine” does not only give a visual reference to the theme of the book, but has also an important practical reason, since it makes the book lie flat on a surface without closing, something that is very practical for the many with spinal cord injuries without full mobility in both hands.
