Chrysalis Impact publishes a comprehensive guide to marijuana by Nick Jones in April, devised by Grade Design. Called Spliffs: A Celebration of Cannabis Culture, the 256-page book features photography by Neil Sutherland and orange colourways throughout, alongside descriptions of over 50 of the world’s favourite varieties of cannabis; a spliff-rolling section and profiles of historical ‘pot-heads’, says Grade creative director Paul Palmer-Edwards, who led the creative team. It also includes a guide to Amsterdam’s cannabis culture and a recipe chapter. According to Palmer-Edwards the book is designed to appeal to a wide audience and includes a discussion on the impact of marijuana on society and the legal issues surrounding it.
