Now in paperback...


When Canongate Books first published Oliver Burkeman’s book, The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking, they asked us to create an introductory animation.

They liked it so much that, when they released the paperback version of the book, they asked us to create the cover in the same cut-out paper style. Here it is, as well as a short movie of Matias creating it, just to prove we really did it. 

The illustration attracted some nice comments from book cover connoisseurs around the world too. It was featured on the The Casual Optimist's 'recent book covers of note' list, Lovely Book Covers, and the Jackie Magpie blog wrote:

With nice detail and depth added with matt silver foil, I love this quirky papercut cover from Scriberia – it actually makes me rather happy all on its own!
