Utrecht studio Today Designers has created a book of nautical tales that smells like the sea because it’s printed with squid ink.
Naar Inkt Vissen (Fishing For Ink) contains 20 sailors’ tales written in Dutch, accompanied by pictures from different illustrators.
The designers used one and a half litres of squid ink sourced from a fish auction on the Dutch coast to print 700 books that are screen printed with silk and bound by fishing wire using a Japanese stab-binding technique.
