Storybook Helsinki and Beyond

When you walk through the streets of Helsinki and open your eyes to some of the buildings around you, you will soon find out that this city is full of architectural treasures.

Exactly this is what happened to Cody Douglas Oreck, the American ambassador’s wife when she explored her new home in 2009 for the first time. Searching for a book to tell her more about those astonishing buildings she soon found out that there was none.

Together with the talented Romanian photographer Octavian Bâlea she started working on exactly such a book. Three years later the Storybook Helsinki and Beyond is now on sale. And it’s worth risking a look. This beautifully illustrated book makes you see buildings you always passed by before in a completely different light.

You can get it from most bookstores in town for 44,95€ or download it as an iBook for about 15 €.
