This photobook focuses on the importance of the micro dimension and the design was therefore based on the initial idea of ​​creating a collection of images in a stamp format. The book (13.5 cm x 19 cm) is paperback and although it looks like a normal photographic book, it has pages with four empty spaces where you can insert the images in a predetermined numerical order. The images (5×7 cm) are printed on die-cut adhesive sheets and are four per page, following the numerical order in the book. The viewer is able to interact with the book, by placing the sheets on each page to see the sequences or by attaching the sticker-images in the given spaces. The viewer could even decide to twist the whole editing completely and create your own. The book is sold in a box that was inspired in design and simplicity by the boxes used for artist in the 70s and 80s.

Description of Form
This photobook is hardback and contained within a white box that mimics the cover design of the book. The pages within are devoid of photos, showing only blank square spots where photographs should be placed. The book comes with an accompanying selection of images with which to decorate the photobook yourself. There are 186 images, all 50 x 70 mm, on 46 pages.
