After Microsoft completed its deal to acquire Nokia last month, executives asked The Church of London to create a book that would outline the shared values and vision of the new partnership.

The book features an embossed cover of red and gold material and original illustrations, in addition to some archival photography. It was designed to be given to employees to commemorate the first day of the new business. It is divided into three parts, each showcasing a different theme. Part one is called ‘A History of Firsts,’ and it talks about the individual conception of both Microsoft and Nokia, and highlights some of their successes, while part two, called ‘What Drives Us,’ details the shared ideas and principles of the companies. The third part, ‘Unlimited Possibilities.’ is an illustrated notebook that features trivia about both corporations and leaves space for employees to write their own ideas about the future.
