Elie Nadelman: Classical Folk
Produced in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts, this book was designed to echo the feeling of Nadelman’s work, invoking 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 Nadelman’s aesthetic. Images of all the sculptures are either silhouetted or positioned with full-bleed backgrounds to enhance the sculptures’ three-dimensionality. The flourish caps were adapted from the artist’s signature. A brochure, bookmark, and poster were also designed.
