NICOTYE SAMAYUALIE

Nicotye is an artist fascinated by patterns and arrangements of disparate objects in nature and man-made materials. Many of her drawings depict everyday items such as the contents of a pantry shelf, a table of shiny fishing lures or boxes of camping supplies. The Office of Gilbert Li was asked to design a publication as a part of /edition art book fair which was entering its second year. I had the pleasure of coming up with an overall design, choosing the printed materials and binding techniques. The 52-page book measures 6 × 8 inches and was printed as a limited edition of 150. The work is printed on uncoated paper with thread-sewn binding. The cover was screen printed on Mohawk’s potato starch infused Curious Matter paper in Adiron Blue, which added an extra tactile feel.  A copy of the book can be purchased through /edition.
