We were commissioned by the Tate to design a set of books for their Look Again Series – a new set of short books written by leading voices from the worlds of literature, art and culture. Each book sheds new light on some of the most well-known, loved and thought-provoking artworks in the Tate’s national collection.
The design was led by full bleed detail crops of the images to encourage the viewer to look closer. This was paired with the typeface Lausanne chosen for its sophisticated, ultra organic aesthetic providing the contrast needed against the images. Setting the type to a frame allowed the image details space whilst creating a clear structure for the typographic information.
