Anti was contacted by Mustad Eiendom wanting help to design a coffee table book that would take the reader through its 500 years of industrial history. Mustad Eiendom wanted a high end book that would provide both a good visual and content related experience and also a book that would serve as a historical reference. The book would be sent as a gift to business partners as well as sold in a selected bookstore at the Mustad owned shopping center CC Vest. The 330 pages
is an exciting journey in both text and pictures through the industrial history of what is today the area Lilleaker. The book describes over 500 years of history that includes pioneers, inventors, scientists, artists and industrialists both national and international. The pictures in the book
are drawn from various historical works, journals and archives and is retained in its original color profile and quality to emphasize the book's historical value. The cover has a sand colored cloth skirting with silver foil and a sash around the book in Mustad blue with the title embossed. The choice of colours and materials maintains the seriousness of the historical work ,but also works as great gift wrapping. The book was printed in 2500 copies at a Swedish printer company called Gøteborgtrykkeriet, a company known for their expertise with comprehensive printing assignments. Anti wish to thank
the Managing Director of Mustad Eiendom, Halvard Øye and author Harald Utter for a great cooperation and inspiration during this process.
