Tõnis Saadoja laemaal Teater NO99s. Eesti monumentaalmaal 1879–2012

The book documents the process of Tõnis Saadoja’s ceiling painting in Theatre NO99 in Tallinn, while offering the reader an overview of monumental painting in Estonia in the 20th century. The first section of the publication shows Paul Kuimet’s 6 × 6 format photographs of the painting process. This is followed by a subjective encyclopedia of Estonian monumental painting by art historian Gregor Taul. Large, square format photographs of murals and monumental artworks alternate with text pages introducing the artworks printed on various shades of gray background. This compliments the grayscale colour scheme of both the book and Saadoja’s ceiling painting. The third section of the book comprises Alina Astrova’s interview with Saadoja, discussing his working process.

The chosen typeface, Literaturnaya, originates from Soviet Russia and points toward the era of Soviet oppression and the ideological legacy still seen through its murals. The book has a removable spine label that is printed on cardboard and can later be used as a bookmark. The dust jacket can be folded out into a poster. On one side, there is a life-size fragment from the ceiling painting – a close-up shot of a tree. The other side of the poster shows the print of a graphite paper, used by the artist for transferring the outlines of a photographic image onto the ceiling.
