As a co-op student for the Satellite Gallery interested in publication design, I was lucky enough to design an artist’s book/catalogue for our current exhibition, Peter Morin’s Museum.
I had a wonderful experience working with artist Peter Morin, MOA curator Karen Duffek, and manager Karen Benbassat; we put together a publication that incorporated elements of the installation, such as wraparound end-pages that reveal the title of the book, and hand-binding that incorporates the imitation sinew used in Museum’s tent. Tahltan red is seen throughout, and Peter Morin’s handwriting is used in headers, making his written presence felt from the beginning to the end of the publication.
Now that you’ve gotten a sneak peak at the layout, let’s dive right into the binding process!
I don’t want to kill you all with this level of anticipation. Let’s skip a few steps and move onto the final product:
One down, 249 to go!
Peter Morin’s Museum: Book Launch is this May 29th, 2011, from 2-4pm. Just by coming you can pick yourself up a complimentary copy of his fresh-off-the-press artist’s book, and get it signed by the authors.
