Plåtat book and exhibition




One hundred years of press photography for Sweden's biggest daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter, celebrating the 1900 century in the end of 1999. The book was accompanied by an advertising campaign and exhibition that toured institutions in Scandinavia and Germany. Plåtat was awarded with the fine Swedish book design award "Svensk Bokkonst" as well as several other accolades. Bonus information: The Exile on Main Street-inspired collage for the cover was made physically, carefully pinning up old prints to a massive wall!
