Book design, production, print management
Inspired by the obtuse yet tactile qualities of the objects in the exhibition, this book’s thick flexible structure reinforces the ideas inherent in the art. Florio Design employed a soft, uncoated paper and a French-fold lay-flat binding, which allows the consistent use of narrow borders and a carefully formulated grid. The resulting tension reminds the viewer this is not a dusty “lace” and “knitting” enterprise, but expression that has been taken to its radical and subversive extreme.
