This book is a collection of essays by John Berger, named after one of them: ‘Art and Property Now’. It is the first Croatian translation of Berger published in book form. It is also the first book in a newly founded series called ‘Tendencija’ (eng. tendency) which will deal with topics like art in the real world, the political aspects of art and the potential of the artist as an activist. The book was published by BLOK with support from the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung.
The layout and type choice are a contemporary interpretation of pocket-sized books printed in Europe (more specifically Yugoslavia) during the 1970s and 1980s. The book uses bolder weights of Druk for titles, a rigid sans serif that combines very nicely with the delicate and balanced curves of William, a modern Caslon interpretation used for body text and the cover.
The design contrasts the full color coated cover with the more rough interiors printed in Berger’s tradition, only in black on uncoated paper.
11×18.5cm, 94pp, stitched and glued in Otabind style.
