Press Passing at Allander, Edinburgh



I went to Allander in Portobello to press pass Below another sky, the book that I have been designing for the British Council. Below another sky is a book that documents a set of international residencies, which resulted in a collection of prints by twenty artists, including prints by Turner Prize nominees Jim Lambie, David Shrigley, and Janice Kerbel. Curated by Alexia Holt, on behalf of the Scottish Print Network, the project was supported by Creative Scotland and was included in the Glasgow 2014 programme coinciding with the Commonwealth Games. Below another sky was exhibited across Scotland in 2014-15 and the prints have now been acquired by the British Council Collection and will become part of the British Council’s international touring exhibition programme.

As always, everyone at Allander was extremely helpful and, after a few adjustments, I am very happy with the quality of printing of images and text. The book will have an interesting binding that will allow translations and other local information to be inserted as the exhibition tours the world; the printers are as excited as I am to see the end result, which should appear in the middle of next week.

Dovecot What's On Guide 2



Dovecot What's On Guide | January-June 2016

Designed by James Brook for Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, 2015

210 x 148 mm | 12 pages with half cover
Printed by Allander, Edinburgh, on Vision Superior

This is the second edition of the Dovecot Gallery What's On Guide that I have designed. The guide follows the same format as before and is twelve pages plus half cover, which reveals half of a full bleed image of a detail from a rug by the artist Linder, Diagrams of Love: Marriage of Eyes, created with Jonathan Cleaver, Dennis Reinm├╝ller and Kristi Vana Coleman at Dovecot Tapestry Studio in 2015. The rug became the 'eighth dancer' in a new ballet titled Children of the Mantic Stain, choreographed by Kenneth Tindall, with music by Maxwell Sterling, performed by Northern Ballet with signature sportswear designed by Christopher Shannon, commissioned as part of the Hayward touring exhibitiion British Art Show 8.

As with the first guide that I designed for Dovecot, full-bleed images are used throughout in contrast with pages of pared back typography in black, grey and Dovecot Pink, printed on the clean white of Vision Superior, an uncoated paper with a pleasing feel. The format and template is adaptable to accommodate new types of information: in this case, to include more exhibition sponsor logos, the page layouts were tweaked slightly, whilst still retaining the look and feel of the first edition.
