This is the story of a very special art catalogue that I designed for the Romanian sculptor Virgil Scripcariu
during my time as a graphic designer at AnnArt Gallery. The catalogue was launched during a solo show at the Gallery.
Because of the delicate nature of the works depicted, it was crucial that all colors are conveyed properly on matte paper. The catalogue was offset-printed and the artist came personally to sign the first good sheet that came from the printing machine. I further overlooked the production to make sure everything matched, including photographs that bled onto the neighboring sections.
In the end everything looked good - rough bronze surfaces and delicate silvers, wooden toy-like items with leather straps, the wonderful mirror-like cape of the main sculpture, Supermam, depicted on the book cover.

Here are some images from the launch of the catalogue. You can see the artist signing the first copies.
Virgil Scripcariu has a number of sculptures on display both in private collections and public spaces.
I am very proud to have been a part of this project.
