99

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Specialist & Limited Edition Books / 2017

A collection of 99 short stories, each consisting of exactly 99 words, launched on Sep 9. The print run is limited, with only 99 numbered copies produced for sale. The book in book in book idea came about when we were exploring the geometries of the number 99 (eg 2 cubed + 3 cubed + 4 cubed = 99). It is also a Kaprekar number (99 squared = 9801; 98+01 = 99). Adopting similar geometrically fascinating ideas like Matryoshka dolls and the Droste Effect, the idea quickly became an intriguing brief to bring to life. The books become a mini discovery for the reader as she delves into the stories.
