Budapest-based photographer Gábor Kasza documents the rawness of unfinished concrete buildings. When he decided to turn his series into a book, which he’s funding through Indiegogo, he wanted readers to be able to judge it by its cover. To that end, he designed a concrete slipcase.
“I designed a piece to echo its content, somewhere between a damaged, unfinished volume and a contemporary minimalistic shape,” he writes on his crowdfunding campaign. “The look of the book gives the same unfinished impression as the buildings.”
Kasza spent a year prototyping the concrete slipcase, which weighs about three pounds and whose sides are about 1/10th of an inch thick. “It is waterproof, oil proof, UV and radiation resistant,” he writes.
