New work from Pentagram

by whitewirestudio

Pentagram recently posted a history book they completed for MICA in Baltimore. Project lead and designer was Abbott Miller along with Jeremy Hoffman. Printed on Mohawk Loop Silk Coated 80lb Text and Mohawk Loop Antique Vellum. Lovely! An excerpt from their project page:

The book design integrates the institutional identity designed by Miller for MICA in 2007. Bridging the school’s history, the cover of the book features the Main Building, built in 1908, wrapped in a translucent jacket of the identity’s graphic pattern, which was inspired by industrial elements in the school’s architecture and the high-tech frit of the iconic Brown Center, built in 2004. Inside, the story of the school is traced through 450 images including historical photographs, illustrations, works of art by students and faculty, building plans, artifacts and ephemera. The design uses fonts of the identity, Giza and Griffith Gothic, the latter of which was originally designed by a local designer, Chauncey Griffith. Lexicon is the text font.
