Cultural Connections

Joel Katz Design Associates, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1995

Description

Most books about art, culture, or history consist of text supported by random illustrations or illustrations accompanied by brief or insubstantial captions. The design structure of this book supports the notion that collections are built, not born, and that the way artifacts are acquired, organized, and displayed reflects a culture’s values, ideas, and preoccupations at a given point in time. Here, text, art, and captions that refer to artifacts in Philadelphia collections are treated as complete thoughts in a series of spreads so that the reader can immediately grasp the connections.
