With this approach in mind we tried to translate this into a design, that creates a complete image as a series, but is at the same time able to highlight each artists quality. Each booklets cover is folded oblique on the book block. It can be seen as a mismatching cover, in a way referring to the unadapted way of working of the featured artists. It exposes bits of the inside content of the book. This factor changes in colour and position during the series. The inside attempts a nice mixture of full color and PMS printed pages. The work of the specific artist is enhanced by the text from different authors and a specific chosen lettertype.
For the first booklet Nest#2 that is entitled (Con)Textual - What do we really read? and featured the artists Anne Dijkstra and Peter Koole were presented; The two artist are both creating 'flat works' such as drawings and paintings, in which they relate to visual and inter-textual documentations. By exploring the area between original truth and subjective truth the artist visually question our way of reading, such as daily news (Koole) and classic literature (Dijkstra). We made use of two different uncoated papers, coloured and recycled one, representing a bit of roughness which you can find back in the work of the artists. In a way the first publication forms the exception of the series since it is the only one that featured two different artist at once.
