A sort of family album with three attempts to mimic the gaze of the sisters Brontë. The album shows the portrait of each sister, the mimetic gaze and a metaphorical fusion in the form of double exposed portraits. The past and the present are mixed – time, person and place is repealed. Niklas Qvarnström lends his voice to Branwell, the brother of the Brontë sisters, in fictional diary entries from his last days. The book contains nine original works of Marie Andersson. The cover is printed by the artist using sunlight. With time, the title will eventually disappear.
Sailor Press aims to offer an alternative to publishing restricted by the constraints of institutions or larger publishers. In close dialogue and collaboration with the artists we develop publications that explore the artist's work as well as the book as a medium. The content of the book and the book as object are equally important. Sailor Press is founded and run by book designer Matilda Plöjel, and wishes to explore the field between art and graphic design. Sailor Press also distributes critical writings on design, craft and art.
