Anni Albers: Notebook 1970—1980
This book is a facsimile of the only known notebook of legendary artist Anni Albers. From the David Zwirner Books website: ‘Beginning in 1970, Anni Albers filled her graph-paper notebook regularly until 1980. This rare and previously unpublished document of her working process contains intricate drawings for her large body of graphic work, as well as studies for her late knot drawings. The notebook follows Albers’s deliberations and progression as a draftsman in their original form. It reveals the way she went about making complex patterns, exploring them piece by piece, line by line in a visually dramatic and mysteriously beautiful series of geometric arrangements.’
I designed the book’s cover and end matter pages. Do have a look at the facsimile pages too though!
