Atlas of the Copenhagens



Copenhagen is analyzed and rigorously quantified to pin down the ungraspable life of a city. The traditional idea of a book containing a collection of cards has been completely modernized in Atlas of the Copenhagens and it is therefore highly contemporary. This publication truly fits the category of a role-model for meticulous atlas making. The attention to delicate details in this book is meticulous, such as the clever varieties of presenting certain densities on the maps in different ways or the index on the spine of the book with the two sewing stitches that are left out to keep the text on the spine legible.
