A BOOK FOR YOURSELF OR TO BE GIVEN AS A GIFT, FAR AND NEAR
The book "Kaunis Kangasala - Beautiful Kangasala" is a visually outstanding,
new kind of gift book that is aimed at people who are interested in the sceneries
and cultural environments in Kangasala. It also acts as an information source
for social media productions.
The dimensions of this bilingual book have been designed for gift purposes:
it is both pleasant to read and light to carry with. The Finnish and English text
columns run parallel, making it easier to interpret the contents to a third language.
The compact size and light weight of the book make it possible to post
the book for just the cost of a letter.
Most of the photographs are provided with coordinates, to make finding locations
easier. Thus you can, equipped with a navigator device, find the exact shooting
spot without a map. On the endleaves you can locate the places mentioned
in the book in a traditional way. In the book design, a lot of attention
has been paid to its readability.
The book consists of two main parts: The story of the song "Kangasala Summer Day"
is described in the poem "The Wondrous Song", beginning from the creation
of Topelius's poem. The text is accompanied by the song score and
all six verses - also translated into English. The second part, "Visiting Kangasala"
concentrates on the natural and cultural environments of Kangasala
as well as touristic sites.
