As a graphic designer i´m totally obsessed by nice printed matter, typography and editorial design. After the first view of the new publication of Steidl, "Paper Passion", it was absolut clear that i have to share this.
Paper Passion fragrance by Geza Schoen, Gerhard Steidl and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl is a not just a book and not just a parfume. Better. It is a book object.
The style of the book is timeless and simple with red paper and classic black type. In the middle you find a cut-out with a very simple glass flask. This bottle containes the smell of ink and paper. Perfect for all editorial and typographiy addicted people like me.
“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”Karl Lagerfeld
