Zhang Huan

Spin, London, England, 2007

Description

Commissioned by the Haunch of Venison gallery, the Zhang Huan catalog was designed to support exhibitions of the artist’s work in London and Berlin. The tone of the design is sober and reflective; the gray stock matches the ash that the artist employs in much of his work.

Juror Notes

A symphony of grays. A great combination of paper, art, type and cover.
