I choose these particular prints because with simple typography and really strong color it has impact, shows a phrase (probably said by the artist) which has humour and it is almost saying (with other words) “You have to come or I’ll be deluded”. Also because the sentence “Honey” made me smile! Like the simple and beautiful graphic design as well!
Yesterday I was musing on the fact that so many invitation cards use books in their design – whether it be images of book covers, photographs of real books, paintings or drawings of books, stacks of books, self made books, images from performances using books…..and then Daniel came in and I was explaining my idea to him and he mentioned that Christoph Schifferli, from whose personal collection a lot of the invitation cards in this exhibition come from, had himself planned an entire wall in the exhibition based around the concept of cards using printed matter – a nice serendipity. I was a little stricter in my choice though and only photographed cards using books, not printed matter in general.
