    Bud Rodecker: Arik Levy, Absent Nature catalogue

Have a good gander at Bud Rodecker's gorgeous catalogue for Absent Nature

Posted by James Cartwright,

As if you’ve not already been spoilt for stunning books today we’ve got yet another fine example of printed, bound matter to get your juices flowing. This time it comes in the form of a beautiful cloth-bound hardback catalogue for fine artist Arik Levy’s Absent Nature collection. Exquisitely designed by Chicago-based Bud Rodecker, the volume affords Arik’s simplistic natural forms the space they need to translate onto a printed surface while the typographic treatments throughout the book echo the broken organic forms in the physical works. Don’t even get us started on the deboss on the front cover. Catalogues don’t get much better than this!
