The book was designed by Michael Aberman, former design director at the Aspen Art Museum, and was printed by die Keure, a producer of art books in Belgium. Aberman used eight different papers for the book, including two from a paper family whose textures are inspired by snow surfaces. His intention was to mimic the changes in snow texture seen on the mountain over the course of a ski season.
“The World Cup Finals have been described as the most community-unifying event in Aspen in a generation,” says Miracle. “We wanted to honor its success by producing a spirited reminder of what went down, as well as tying the finals’ story to the bigger ski-racing legacy of Aspen, which goes back seven decades.”
The book retails for $79.
