"When I started the work with the book I put up some distinctive criteria to follow during the production process.
It should be a book that is:
- Unique in the way it presents the country.
- Independent and objective.
- Positive without shying away from controversial subjects.
The book should be timeless both in a design matter but also, as far as possible, when comes to it’s content. If you take it from your bookshelf within a few years time it shall still feel fresh and relevant.
The content – The Polish Soul
The content should, when it’s seen as a whole, represent not a superficial image of Poland but go deeper and explain why today’s Poland is as fascinating to me as it really is. Therefore, no aspect could be left unmentioned – resulting in 11 chapters. In order to stay true to each of these 11 aspects of Poland the final printed book comprises 388 pages.
The Text
Even if I intensively have learned about Poland’s all aspects since I arrived in 2003, I drafted one of the most knowledgeable experts to further be able to, in an entertaining way, explain the sometimes complex interactions that have led to the Poland we see today. Kjell Albin Abrahamson has, with his sharp analyses, been a priceless addition when it comes to explaining this spellbinding country.
The Design
After two years of evolving the draft design I put the finishing touches together with Pontus Olauson. Our guidelines where – since it’s target is the international market, the design should work regardless the readers cultural background. The design should be understated, allowing the content to transmit the message without disturbing design elements.
