Ruth Lingen and Kelly Doe Studio, New York, New York, 2005

Description

Both the cover and catalog were made in the spirit of collaboration, both conceptually and technologically. The intent of the hand-printed cover is to give the viewer an insight into the tactile quality that imbues these hand-printed images—literally, to put the smell of fresh ink into the book!

Juror Notes

Hooray for a hand-printed jacket for a book on hand-printed works on paper. This truly hand-painted vellum wrapper (I could even smell the oil-based ink) feels like the genuine article. Color-chip cover beneath integrates well—great use of layering.
