Design studio Tappin Gofton have been working in collaboration with Nadav Kander following his exhibition Bodies. 6 Women, 1 Man to create two sleek, hand-made book editions featuring Nadav’s human subjects. The first version features a black cloth cover with a foil blocked finger smear, made by Nadav himself. The second limited edition book features a unique hand painted cover (also by Nadav), and it echoes “the application of the hand applied white paint and dust used on all of the nude bodies.”
The simple, yet striking design of the book excellently complements the dramatic effect of the white bodies against the black background. They successfully translate the aura of the exhibition into print, and for that reason you are still stunned by the effect of these photographs.
