Elie Nadelman: Classical Folk
Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name by the American Federation of Arts. The book’s design, echoing the feeling of Nadelman’s work, seeks to invoke classicism pared down to its more modern, minimal elements. The Optima font was chosen for its modern but gentle curves, which reflect those elements in the Nadelman’s aesthetic. Images of all the sculptures were either silhouetted or positioned with full-bleed backgrounds to enhance the sculptures’ piquant three-dimensionality. The flourish caps were adapted from the artist’s signature. A brochure, bookmark, and poster were also designed to accompany the exhibition. June 2001. 136 pages, 252 × 290 mm. ISBN 1-885444-21-4.
