A love letter to life outside the slopes: “Current State: Snowboarding” is a book that focuses on the status quo of the global snowboard culture. 450 pages thick and made up of two interconnected books, it features interviews and pictures of the best known personalities in this sport. Unfolded in its entirety, each book spread consists of four pages of correlating content: two in the upper and two in the lower book. This was done not only to accommodate the large amount of images but also to find a solution for the book´s Japanese translation (part of the same publication) that runs alongside the same visual content.
