Hverdag Books

Publications for and about the everyday


Pauseromsplakater is a project in response to the coronavirus outbreak of 2020, initiated by the artist Tiril Hasselknippe. 44 artists from or based in Norway created supportive and motivational posters that were sent to over 70 break room in hospitals and nursing homes around the country.

A new round of the posters were also produced in a larger size and made available to the public for a limited time with all profits going to Doctors Without Borders.

It's still not too late to get one!

Hverdag's involvement in the project started with printing the pilot run of posters and keeping in touch with artists. However, this expanded organically into being part of the core project group (along with Hasselknippe and Marie Buskov) and being responsible for the project's graphic profile, among other things.

This project was made possible with the generous support of Fritt Ord, Kulturrådet, and Grafill Illustrasjon. The posters were collectively printed at Hverdag Books in Oslo, Pamflett in Bergen, &soWalter in Stavanger, and SMØR Press in Trondheim.


Artists' Books in Norway was an essay based in personal reflection on the growing popularity of artists' books in Norway over (almost) the last decade that was commissioned by Bergen Art Book Fair. It can be read here.


Food. Place. Memory. was a intensive two day Risograph workshop in central Oslo in collaboration with Low Standards and the landscape architect Miles Hamaker.

10 participants came and shared recipes and memories of food, which were then translated into two color posters. Folded down, the final result of the workshop was a loose leaf cookbook which was launched at a Sunday evening potluck.
