Irma Boom — Amsterdam, Netherlands

Irma Boom's latest innovation is a book commissioned by Chanel, the Parisian fashion house, for its Chanel No.5 perfume. The ink-less 300-page book is embossed with a drawing or a quotation on each of its crisp white pages that helps the story of Gabrielle Chanel unfold. The attention to detail in this book is astonishing – clean, understated and ephemeral, and yet somehow still totally engrossing.

Irma Boom has designed some of the coolest books ever put on a shelf. The Amsterdam-based designer has created more than 250 volumes throughout her career – and 20 percent of them have been included in a permanent collection at the MoMa. A Boom book is an experience and an object to be appreciated in its own right.
