This publication from 2019 is an artist’s catalog for the Simon Lee Gallery for their Dexter Dalwood exhibition and is a Dostoevsky want to be original. They’re the graphic design company who produced this and check out that front cover. THAT is graphic design, isn’t it? Look at the circular and square pattern on the front cover with the lines going through it. Subtle yellow going through the middle. I love the background pattern that they’ve added to try and give it that old school kitsch appearance. Really, really looks like it’s got a texture and a material finish, even though it’s printed onto 300 gram uncoated to smooth. Just lovely graphic design on the front cover of this.
It’s a neat, compact little book, 203 high on 27 wide. Perfect bound with a neat five mil spine. You open it up and you’ve got a solid mix between an essay from Michael Bracewell and images from Dexter Dalwood. Okay, that’s a cool one. That’s some brilliant, brilliant work.
Type is well set on the pages. The images are given space to breathe. Each page has got a page number in the corner so you know where you are as you flick through. It’s just a really, well designed, neat book. Bespoke sizes, so this is slightly smaller than A5. We don’t charge extra for them. If you want something that’s slightly off kilter, let us know, and we will be able to print it. This is 203 x 127, so it takes a centimetre off the height and the width of A5. It just makes the publication a lot more unique.
