Join us at Pages & Spreads II Oct. 19th Lester’s Miami
This edition, as well as the past issues K48, is highly attractive due to its peculiar trim size and printing. At proximately 5.5 x 6 inches, it is rather small and boxy. But, the size is no shortcoming, for the book is filled with wonderful production values. It comes cased in a thick slip, printed with spot UV on both sides. The book cover has a foil stamped tittle, and a tipped-in photograph. Inside, the magazine explores a wide range of printing techniques which are surprising and rewarding.
A book about books :) Second edition sold out, I hope a new edition will follow. For more on the publisher visit Occasional Papers.
A recent submission ”Skeletons in the Closet” by Klaus Pichler, a photographer from Viena, Austria. Without any prior knowledge of the book, I was immediately captivated by its binding, design and peep-hole cover. “Skeletons in the Closet,” is a series of photographs taken at the Meuseum of Natural History in Vienna. It documents life behind the scenes, giving the viewer an aspect of the museum normally reserved for researchers and staff. You may purchase “Skeleton in the Closet” HERE!
Printed Pages, now in it’s 2nd edition keeping us well informed on all things nice. Once again, the magazine features interviews and stories with creatives at the top of their game like photographer Nadav Kander and artist Geoff McFetridge to find out what informs their creative approaches and we sought out lesser-known stories like the British Museum’s extraordinary braille guides for blind visitors.
