new Blurb book: 30 days of winter

Finally, here is the project I mentioned before; a new Blurb photo book called 30 days of winter.

In December 2010 I received a package from Mallorca, Spain. It was a Christmas card and a film from my friend Lorena Arance, whom I’ve met online through Flickr and blogging. We share a passion for shooting film and Lorena sent me one of her favorites – a German film called Müller 200. In return I decided to do a special project of everyday life journaling, which I know Lorena adores.

I loaded this Müller 200 iso film in my Minolta SRT 101 camera on December 29 and took one photo every day until the film was finished. Each day I made a note of what I had photographed and wrote a few words about that day. The result is a record of 30 days of winter on the west coast of Norway.

The book is 36 pages, square format, soft cover. It is available here in my Blurb bookstore. You can view a little preview here and I have uploaded a few of the photos from the book to this set on Flickr.

Edit: Lorena wrote a very sweet post about this project.


  1. :) Good morning, Astrid.

  2. It's beautiful, Astrid. A reminder to look at the sweeter things of winter as the winds howl outside my window.

    this might be one of my favorite blurb books of yours ever. Not only for the photos, but for the sentiment and the story of friendship.

  4. nydelig bok. :)

    Har faktisk kjøpt litt film eg og. Inspirert av deg.

  5. Den er nyyyydelig, som alltid :)

    Jeg prøvde meg på Blurb forleden, men maskinen min jobbet så tregt med programmet at jeg bare måtte slutte. Det er kanskje maskinen min som ikke har nok plass, eller hva...kanskje du har noen tips?

  6. It looks like a really lovely book, Astrid. I look forward to touching its pages!
