Design Description

When designing a catalog for a group show, the cover art can sometimes be a challenge. Since a single artist’s work could not appear on the cover, we took thin slices from each artwork and created a layered effect reminiscent of paper fibers, layers of paper, or press proofs. This pattern was carried throughout the catalog as carefully subdued page edging that does not detract from the artwork images.
