Part children’s book/part art object, The boy who always looked up describes the events leading up to the death of the modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger as seen through the eyes of a boy called Tom, who lives in the shadow of Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower.
With exquisite attention to detail a consistent palette of three spot colours is used throughout the book, incorporated from the interior of Goldfinger’s house at 2 Willow Road, London NW3.

The book is section sewn and case-bound (rounded and backed) using Imitlin – an embossed, woodfree Kraft paper that looks like cloth but acts like paper and can therefore be printed litho offset to full effect.
Munken Lynx is used throughout on the inner pages, paper over board cover, end papers and dust jacket.
A beautiful book for aspiring architects all of all ages.
Published by Lisson Gallery with the support of the National Trust and University of Huddersfield, written by Ryan Gander, illustrated by Alessandra Genualdo, designed by Emilia Bergmark, printed by Calverts.
