Andreas Samuelsson: Red, green, blue and you

When I first saw this book last week in the Human Empire Shop, my initial thought was, the title is just perfect: Red, green, blue and you. No more to say, no more text inside, but some empty space, where you are free "to fill in the rest based on your imagination". The watercolor and pencil drawings are printed on a risograph machine in four colours. It's the first book project by graphic illustrator Andreas Samuelsson, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Take a look at his impressive portfolio and website. The book is co-published by Swiss publishing houses Nieves and Rollo Press.
