TURNING POINT – Finnish book covers from the 1950s and 1960s and the art these decades inspired

Hämeenlinna Art Museum, Hämeenlinna

  • 14.10.2022–30.4.2023

Turning Point is dedicated to exploring Finnish book cover design from the 1950s and 1960s and the relationship between book covers and fine art. It focuses primarily on cover designs created by Ahti Lavonen (1928-1970), better known for his work as an artist, and graphic designer Martti Mykkänen (1926-2008). Their distinct perspectives on the era, and on book art, provide a complementary insight into the topic. A further dimension to the exhibition is added by bibliophilic contemporary art: Panu Rytkönen’s (born 1983) sculpture draws its inspiration from Finnish books from the 1950s and 1960s and the authors’ dedications that appear in them.
