Tate British Artists

Client: Tate

Book series design spanning 13 artists including Lucian Freud, J.M.W. Turner, Francis Bacon and Barbara Hepworth. 

The Tate British Artists series spans 13 books on artists including Lucian Freud, J.M.W. Turner, Francis Bacon and Barbara Hepworth. Originally, they were a series of glossy black covered paperbacks and our job was to make them a more desirable and collectable series.

Our solution was to turn them into a hardback series with a cloth binding and colour scheme to complement the individual artist’s palette. Inside the images are given more room to breathe and the typography is fresh and modern.
