SHARE Pocket, Lagom contains 40 pieces of artwork in a new format (A4) that explores the concept of Lagom in the eyes of Swedish illustrators and photographers. Following the success of our previous volumes of SHARE, this instalment continues to combine high quality prints on perforated pages with captivating imagery. Each page presents some of those artists’ finest projects work, along with information about them and few words on their vision.
Lagom is a uniquely Swedish term that doesn’t have an English equivalent. Not only does it not translate perfectly but its just a very Swedish idea, or feeling. A popular etymological translation is “around the team” meaning enough food or drink for everyone at the table, this translation is said to go back to Viking times. Lagom is “Just enough,” “Not too much or too little,” “Just right,” “Enough to go around,” “Fair share.” It indicates balance. Lagom doesn’t have the negative connotation of “sufficient” nor does it claim perfection.
