Materia Oscura, 2019
The artist book Materia Oscura has been published in an edition of 100+ 15 artist proofs, of which 50 are allocated for acquisition.
For the design of the book I have teamed with KOLN studio in Madrid and for the printing with Artes Gráficas Palermo in Madrid. With the realisation of an artist book the aim was to get as close as possibile to fine art printing. For this reason the book has been printed with digital/offset process (Indigo) to allow increased contrast and deep colour saturation using “arte coated” paper Guardapat Kiara.
The stamping on the cover allows a unique materiality which by process changes patterns making each copy unique. Each copy is signed and numbered. Full specifications below.
The book has been shortlisted at the Kassel Dummy Awards 2019.
