I’m a huge fan of Stranger & Stranger. The level of craft and thought that goes into their work never ceases to amaze me. For the past seven years we’ve been receiving their annual Christmas gift designed for clients and friends alike, and every year it’s one the gifts I most look forward to receiving.

“Twenty years is a long time in studio years and so we thought we’d celebrate the year with something a little less frivolous than our typical offering. The Book of Stranger features a few hundred of the four and a half thousand jobs we’ve done in that time and the cover, inspired a little by Hieronymous Bosch features all of them. We were looking for appropriate packaging and the human skin covered books of the Bosch era seemed appropriate. Just kidding, it’s not human. It is skin though.”

    The under-the-skin concept is very cool, and it looks great! Love that they used real skin instead of textured paper.
