It might be argued that if you were to take a selection of women whose job it is to be startlingly beautiful, and then have extremely capable photographer Alessandro Furchino photograph them, you’d have a hard time making a book of the images that was anything less than lovely. That simply isn’t true, though, and Andy Massaccesi’s excellent work in designing Sublime for the model agency Monster Management is absolutely not to be sniffed at.
The book is a clean, simple and aesthetically pleasing ode to the sublime, executed in a soft dusky coral pink, contained in a sleeve and generously laid out with each model’s greyscale shot claiming its own double page. There’s even an insert for a quick overview, which does as much to draw us towards the publication as the book itself. You’re right, Andy – the models are sublime, but only so much as the book housing their portraits.
