Editors: Hamish Muir and Mark Holt
Designers: Hamish Muir and Mark Holt
Edition: 740

The eight issues of Octavo, journal of typography, published in the 1980s and 90s, have acquired cult status. Copies sell for exorbitant prices and only rarely become available. If you want to find back issues, be prepared to pay big money. But it’s now possible to ‘own’ all eight issues and to enjoy them at actual size in a brand-new Kickstarter-funded 384pp book – Octavo Redux.

The book has been designed and edited by two of Octavo’s original designers and editors – Hamish Muir and Mark Holt. And, as with the journals themselves, the book uses high-end production techniques to faithfully reproduce the original publications. To quote the editors: ‘Octavo Redux is as close as you can get to the originals without holding them in your hands.’

The book also documents covers and spreads from the full-scale working prototypes made by 8vo during the design process for each issue of Octavo. Subscription cards and subscription card mock-ups are shown at full-scale. The notorious eighth issue of Octavo (the ‘interactive’ CD-ROM) is also documented, including its packaging, as well as the content itself through a selection of actual-size screenshots (640×480 pixels).

The pre-desktop computer production processes employed in the early issues of Octavo, are documented by showing selected type specifications and proof mark-ups for in-position page-make-up typesetting systems. These often resulted in long ‘discussions’ with the typesetters, conducted via bike messengers, red pen, highlight markers and Tipp-Ex. Through extensive captions and annotations, the book shines a light on this now lost practice of visual engineering – where maths mattered.

Spreads of the printed issues are created from high resolution RGB photography – one image capture per page – made from the original untrimmed press sheets. This allows perfectly flat, squared-up montages of left and right pages to be brought together as spreads in the lay-flat binding used in the production of Octavo Redux.

In the spirit of Octavo, there are many production surprises in store for the reader of Octavo Redux. In addition to the wide gamut repro, which better represents the true colours of the original issues than everyday CMYK, two special inks are used in the book – metallic gold, and in the uncoated sections of the book, a soft neon yellow.

Other material considerations include foil blocking on reflective mirror paper, for the hard cover and end papers, and the books come wrapped in a translucent self-coloured trace jacket, in keeping with the original issues of Octavo.

As Caroline Roberts, in her book Graphic Design Visionaries, has noted: ‘Named after an abbreviation of the book-production term ‘octavo’, 8vo saw themselves as outsiders; they were intense, outspoken and did not identify or engage with the design community. They were pragmatists, obsessed with detail, believing that expression should be a result of the design process, not the motivation for it.’

Although 8vo disbanded in July 2001, Muir and Holt have reunited to design and edit Octavo Redux. They have applied all the ingenuity and close attention to detail that went into the journal to the design and production of this book.

Grandmaster Mind
Amaury Hamon

Fascinated by the age of externalization of memory we live in, I inquired about its antagonist: the Art of Memory. Grandmaster Mind is an initiatory journey through mnemonic techniques. From beginner to Grandmaster, the book travels through the re-encoding of mundane datas (lists, numbers…) into memorable visual narratives.

The design is built on the duality between data and its mental projection. The digital aesthetic acts as a personal database of pre-existing memories and knowledge—a key to visualize to-be-remembered informations.

Supervised by Gilles Gavillet and Diego Bontognali

The work of renowned Guadalajaran artist Gonzalo Lebrija addresses notions of power, bureaucracy and hypocrisy in Mexican society and, by association, the Western world.

Creating photographs and installations imbued with both humour and a probing insistence to unveil the faults of seemingly unfaltering political structures, Lebrija invites us to observe Armani-clad businessmen riding bulls, or lawyers participating in a paper-aeroplane competition from Guadalajara’s tallest office block. By undermining steadfast political and business hierarchies, Lebrija questions the true pecking order of modern society.

In his first major monograph, 80 full-colour illustrations of the artist’s multifarious work sit alongside texts by poets, artists and architects specially commissioned by Lebrija.

7 W 84th Street — NYC 1972
Fabrizio Carbone

Fabrizio Carbone (1942) è un giornalista, scrittore e pittore italiano. 7W 84TH STREET NYC 1972, ideato da Michele Manfellotto, è il suo primo volume monografico composto interamente da fotografie inedite. Le fotografie sono il frutto della sua esperienza americana durante la quale è inviato negli stati uniti per il Resto del Carlino e risalgono al 1972 anno in cui Carbone si licenzierà per via dell’appoggio da parte della testata a i bombardamenti su Hanoi. Ma non è tutto, come scrive lo stesso Carbone: “La storia della mia vicenda americana è legata a Ellen Burke. La prima volta che andai negli Stati Uniti fu con lei, nel 1970. Eravamo sposati da poco e i suoi genitori ci invitarono per una vacanza..”, nella New York di Carbone infatti c’è tutto questo: i suoi affetti, l’America vista da un’italiano comunista immerso nel suo fascino e allo stesso tempo forte delle sue critiche. Pagina dopo pagina è un susseguirsi di istanti, di scene, di fotografie che si accalcano fragili, alcune quasi uguali tra loro: questo libro è prima di tutto una bozza, una sequela di appunti visuali (che poi in parte diverranno anche disegni). Impera la delicatezza, la visione fluida e libera del non fotografo; ogni passo sulle strade e l’immagine che ogni volta ne deriva è parte di qualcosa di più grande, frutto di una sensibilità complessa, un sentire che non si traduce nella forza di ogni singola immagine ma nella profondità del disegno generale, un mosaico delicato, umano, esplorativo.

‘One can never overstate the importance of accessories. They are what turns a dress into something else. I like dresses to be sober and accessories to be wild’, Yves Saint Laurent, 1977.

Yves Saint Laurent Accessories is the first book to date to shed light on the breathtaking accessories created by one of the most influential fashion designers of all time. From his first collection in 1962 to his acclaimed final presentation in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent created exquisite jewellery, hats, shoes, and handbags to complement and enhance each of his couture creations. Beautifully designed, in a small format evocative of a jewellery box, the book offers an unprecedented glimpse into the highly confidential archives of The Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris, which is home to over 20,000 remarkable accessories. The book features specially commissioned photography of the accessories alongside a treasure trove of rare materials including preparatory sketches, intimate portraits of Saint Laurent at work, behind-the-scenes snapshots of models, catwalk photographs, and advertising campaigns. Yves Saint Laurent Accessories introduces readers to a prominent yet rarely seen side of Saint Laurent’s art, leading them backstage and through the history of a house that helped to shape the course of fashion.

Michael Fliri: Replace Me as the Substitute

Texts by Koen Leemans, Nicola Setari and Michele Horrigan

In his work Michael Fliri investigates concepts such as metamorphosis, mutation, disguise and transformation. That transition can be seen as a meeting between different worlds in which diametrically opposed notions and ideas appear to communicate effortlessly with one another: conscious/unconscious, light/dark, nature/culture, content/emptiness, appearing/disappearing. Body, landscape, a thought-out theme and imaginative metaphors together form a compelling whole. Central to his work seems to be the question of what it is that determines who and what we are. What is our identity? How do we form our image of ourselves? Are we really who we think we are? In Michael Fliri’s solo presentation Replace Me As The Substitute at De Garage, all facets of his work come together in a comprehensive show. Without wanting to expand to the proportions of a retrospective, the focus lies on a balanced and subtle dialogue, between works that at first sight perhaps look very different, but that more than ever allows the exceptional coherence in his work to come to the fore. The eponymous publication moreover offers an extended and enduring overview and underscores the international significance and the relevance of his artistic practice.

Excitingly determined…

For many years social critics have been trying to make young people aware of the fact that tattoos will last for a lifetime and that the insights of an 18-year-old might differ to the way they perceive things when they are 40. Tattoo Super Models by Christian Saint counters that well made tattoos on beautiful women are simply gorgeous. It is a plea for the courage to beautify oneself permanently, to do this without any fear of regret it once you’re old – because the bravado to really live in the moment is extremely sexy.

Christian Saint is a professional advertising, celebrity and fine art photographer, residing in (Williamsburg) Brooklyn, New York. With over 20 years experience in the commercial world and tired of the industry’s narrow view of beauty, he focused his sites on the tattoo community. Using his knowledge from commercial fashion and beauty, he helps bring “alternative” to the main-stream. With his unique, sophisticated style he has successfully dragged tattoo photography out of hiding, while consistently exciting a large inter-national audience.

Tattoo Super Models features inked beauties with perfect shapes, wearing almost nothing but seductive body art. Using light masterly to caress a woman’s skin, Christian Saint is highlighting the sexiness of individual body art with a finesse that everybody can fall in love with. Elegant, capriciously and truly sexy.

This high-quality pictorial features different photographers and their unpretentious, casual approach to e:r:o:t:i:c photography. The superficially unarranged, spontaneous or happenstance pictures convey the new subtle form of e:r:o:t:i:c in the ages of Facebook and Instagram. One could almost say their influences were based on the dreaminess of images in the style of David Hamilton, to the directness of a Calvin Klein campaign, all the way to the bodysuit photography of American Apparel catalogs. Subtle h:o:t e:r:o:t:i:c mental cinema at its best- despite today’s (social media) masked requirements.

The fascinating inside story behind the cult French fashion label A.P.C.

A.P.C. (Atelier de Production et de Création) was created as a reaction to the excesses of the 1980s, and the minimalist designs of founder Jean Touitou now have a cult following. This compelling book, published on the occasion of A.P.C.’s 30th anniversary, carries the same minimal aesthetic – yet it’s packed with never-before-seen illustrations and ephemera. Part retrospective of the brand and part personal scrapbook and visual diary, the book includes invitations, postcards, ad campaigns, images of their stores, and collaborations with other designers.

Editor: Museum Folkwang
Author: Alexander Kluge
Designer: Fabian Bremer, Pascal Storz

To mark the occasion of Alexander Kluge’s eighty-fifth birthday, the Museum Folkwang is organizing a comprehensive show of the work of the film-maker, writer, philosopher, and artist. The exhibition is an introduction to Kluge’s artistic “pluriverse” and sets out to illustrate his main methods, themes, and conceptual approaches, with the central focus on his filmic collages. The accompanying book picks up on the themes addressed in the exhibition and concentrates on the principle of work collaboration, which is of key importance for Kluge: the process of “thinking together” with academics and artists, such as Thomas Demand, Georg Baselitz, and Ben Lerner. Both the book and the exhibition are being produced in closecollaboration with Alexander Kluge. “Alexander Kluge: Pluriverse” is at the Museum Folkwang Essen from 15 September 2017 to 7 January 2018 and at the 21er Haus in Vienna from February to April 2018. With texts by Leslie A. Adelson, Christoph Streckhardt, Richard Langston, Ben Lerner, Alexander Kluge, Anna Fricke, a.o.

Photographer / Fotograf: Leonardo Glauso

Italian fashion photographer Leonardo Glauso has captured these natural beauties, specifically for himself. A cross between a nude fashion shoot and private snapshots. Beautiful, sexy – simply erotic. Glauso’s photography sways far from moral norms, his models stand for freedom of sexual expression. In short: stylishly independent, erotic, unbelievably beautiful, loaded with sensuality.

Torbjørn Rødland
The Model

In The Model, Torbjørn Rødland examines one of the defining principles of his approach to photography: that the notion and meaning of ‘the model’ is open-ended. Hyper-aware that we view the world through endless filters that arbitrate our relationship with people, objects and images, from the mid 1990s Rødland’s photography has sought to penetrate postmodern surfaces in order to redefine the possibilities of psychological, erotic and spiritual subjectivity and interconnectivity. He attempts to tap into subliminal thoughts and feelings through images that are both sensual and cerebral.

Synthesizing an array of photographic genres and approaches The Model comprises elements of critical appropriation, diaristic snapshot, reportage, commercial and staged photography – all strung together by the iconic face of Polish actress and fashion model Malgosia Bela. The book brings together pictures of Malgosia made over a ten-year period in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London, Warsaw, Oslo and Lofoten. In Rødland’s words, “We see her interacting with pictures, becoming pictures, being pictures.” Serving as an experiment in photographic language and code, each image elicits a response that equivocates between alienation and intimacy. With this in mind, The Model can also be seen as a love letter to both a medium and to a mediated woman.
