    A well known music journalist and long time friend of White Shoes and The Couples Company (a band from Indonesia), Felix Dass finds himself on a journey to Darwin, Australia together with the band. In this book he writes about his bizarre experiences during their Darwin tour.

    It’s been long known that White Shoes and The Couples Company draws inspiration from a variety of retro Indonesian sounds. But the documentation on the Darwin tour portrays a lot of experiences offstage in a casual manner so the challenge is more on how to stay true to the story but still be able to deliver the band’s flavour to their fans.

    For the book typography we’ve chosen Druk WIde by Commercial Type for headlines, because of its sturdy and durable qualities. Using a serif font for long-form text is still the way to go, so we’ve chosen Inknut Antiqua by Claus Eggers Sørensen for the body copy.

    The cover was screen printed on colorplan paper. Munken Pure paper was used for the book interior.
