We conceived and designed ‘Happy Inventory’, a book celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Luxembourg publisher Maison Moderne. As well as a complete catalogue of the company’s work to date, the book included overviews of the country’s political, economic and cultural history for the period. Expert opinions on the future of publishing provide a glimpse of where the company might be heading in the next twenty years, and a series of the best photography from their magazines provided a further change of pace in this 300-page publication.

We later adapted the design for a live presentation of the book at Luxembourg’s Grand Theatre. A highlight was the reading of the names of all 2,000 people who had worked at the company over the 20 years, building to an audio-visual cacophony to end the live show.
