The collaboration gives a new life to carefully curated second hand books, chosen by Lucy Kumara Moore (Director of Claire de Rouen) and re-covered by hand using offcuts sourced from our previous collections as part of Ssōne's zero waste initiative.
A Child is Born follows the everyday life of an expecting couple, and lets us see how the foetus develops over the nine-months of pregnancy. All illustrated with Lennart Nilsson’s unique pictures.
The first edition was published in October 1965 by Albert Bonniers förlag in Stockholm, and written by Axel Ingelman-Sundberg and Claes Wirsén. Today, A Child is Born is one of the world’s bestselling photo books and has influenced millions of people’s attitudes to life and childbirth.
