This time, we invite our readers to discover a book named Line of Demarcation. The publication accompanied the first major UK exhibition of the work of Rodolfo Aricò, an important figure in post-war Italian art who is primarily known for his ‘object-paintings’.
"Our design for the exhibition catalogue references the physicality of Aricò’s paintings. Representations of key works in the show are formed through the use of densely pigmented cardstock and carefully aligned die cuts, creating a tactile, layered effect. The cover for the book, with its cut-out revealing the paper below, references an early publication of Aricò’s with a similar die-cut detail. Inside, texts are set in Forma, a typeface designed in Italy and first released in 1968, at the height of Aricò’s career,” explained the team of A Practice For Everyday Life.
