The final concept behind Charta was creating book as a classic novel; paired with a clean layout, with minimal of a deep warm red. However the focal point of this concept is not the book, but the case that wraps it. The case is made out of genuine wood, wrapped in birch bark, Complimented with a curved spin. When seen in a bookshelf gives the illusion that part of a real tree is in place. The name of this book is Charta which ties back to the origins of paper and in fact means “paper” however it is written in latin.
