Knock! Knock! Books
Knock! Knock! Books is a long-term project by Else Lagerspetz and Loore Sundja. It is a performative publishing practice in which they explore the topics of independent publishing through the media of fiction and design. The talk presents a mix of facts and fantasy. Similarly to the publications of Knock! Knock! Books, the border between truth and fiction is intentionally vague.
Else Lagerspetz (b. 1994) is a graphic designer based in Tallinn and Helsinki. She has graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts, Department of Graphic Design and is currently continuing her studies in the Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art Master’s program in Aalto University. In 2015 she started together with Loore Sundja an ongoing project Knock! Knock! Books. Together they have also written for several other art publications. Since 2017, Lagerspetz has been a guest lecturer in graphic design at the Estonian Academy of Arts.
