Sauna - Cozy Publishing


Sauna is an enchanting, strongly visual journey to the ambience of Finnish saunas. The rich photography by Viola Minerva Virtamo and stories by Liisa Talvitie and Heli Thorén unite into a holistic description of the essence of the Finnish sauna. The book was published by Cozy Publishing from Finland.

The Sauna Book whisks its readers to the gentle heat of a smoke sauna, a still lake at midnight, a pond amid fells, and other magical moments surrounded by Finnish nature. How to share and describe the experience of having a sauna to someone? Convey that soft, safe feeling in the chest when strolling towards the sauna, or the sense of peace when cooling off afterwards, a tiny, water-wrinkled hand in yours? We did it with stunning images and stirring stories on the Finnish soul landscape and sauna culture. This is a story book about Finnish saunas. Welcome along to the gently caressing heat.
