Book design for the Chilean artist Patricio Farías, Iluminuras Publishing House (São Paulo, Brazil). The format of the publication is 16.5 cm x 24 cm, with hardcover, reversible dust jacket, 368-page book block and supplement.
It's a trilingual edition, organized by Adolfo Montejo Navas. It gathers works produced by Farías over the last 50 years, including sculptures, objects, installations and maquettes. The multiplicity, elegance, irony, social criticism and humor present in the artist's work guided the design of the book.
Illustrated with more than 230 images, the design guidelines included light typography, structured grid that varies by section/type of content and the careful balance between the texts and images. The book's reversible dust jacket highlights the "Hygienic Series" on one side and "N.M" on the other.
