Hand-made books are slightly difficult to showcase online, but do your absolute best to browse through Palefroi’s beautiful projects, screenprinted and produced in limited editions by the Berlin-based art collective. Made up of artists Damien Tran, Marion Jdanoff, and Susann Pönnisch, Palefroi’s work is clever, bold, and consistently engaging – the illustrations feature stark geometric shapes alongside looser, free-flowing elements, and the palette always appears extremely considered. There is also an excellent use of negative space and a keen awareness of “the page” as a scene within a wider progression. Subject matter ranges from mountain peaks and battles to ghostly, mythological creatures, often evoking the sinister and the surreal. Wonderfully done.
