Description from the publisher, Nara Roesler Books:

Abraham Palatnik: Experimentation/Enchantment is the largest monograph ever published on the artist. The publication aims to reaffirm the innovative nature of his practice, broadening and renewing the dialogue about Palatnik’s work, with an ample selection of archival images and works by the artist, as well as historical and unpublished texts written by Pérez-Oramas, curator Abigail Winograd, a specialist in abstract art in South America, art historian Kayra Cabañas and curator Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro. The publication is organized by critic and curator Luiz Camillo Osório.

The kinechromatic apparatus, an important series by the artist, was the starting point of the design by Bloco Gráfico. The transparency of the printed tracing paper was used as a graphic resource analogous to the work’s materiality. This feature is used on the dust jacket and openings of the book and texts, revealing part of the content below. On the cover, the analogy was reinforced by BallPill, rigidly geometric and idiosyncratic, like parts of mobiles, dialoguing with the geometric shadows of Palatnik’s apparatus and other works such as the kinetics objects. The sans used for captions and body copy appears to be Styrene B (see comments).
