Photography: Bookmania by Nicolas Haeni and Thomas Rousset

More unusual ways a good book can improve your life, created for Aperture.

Bookmania is a playful series of photographs we produced for Self Publish, Be Happy: A DIY Photobook Manual and Manifesto, which was commissioned by the Aperture Foundation and published by them in 2015, imagining alternative uses for books as practical everyday objects: a coat for a lapdog, a bento box for your sushi, a pair of sandals, a delicious sandwich and so on. For this we chose Swiss-French photography duo Nicolas Haeni and Thomas Rousset, who work between Paris and Lausanne and are inspired by a love of – yes – everyday objects.
