The common thread of this work is based on the color black and its shadows, which creates subtle contrasts. So for the catalog cover we used an intense black rustic paper, and rather than ink we used high pressure to emboss the title, capturing the concept of the exhibition; the “black Spain”.
Throughout the catalog we play with light and shadow, white space, color and typography, trapping the light on a super white heavy weight paper, adding intensity to the relation between the artists artwork and the texts.
The Bodoni typeface gives a touch of seriousness and probably even a historical feel in details such as credits and intros, while Graphik with its rounded body and modernist style creates solid blocks of text. Finally, Druk lends its visual weight to titles, clearly marking the editorial design.
