Having used small pages within a publication before I know how tricky and expensive it can be. The solution to this problem (which you will find on the side column) is unique and memorable—one that more than one of you might use in the future. Moving on from the production and into design I am drawn by the pacing of the book and the consistent ways in which the content is categorized given the large amount of archived material that needed to be included.

Project Description

This book is the oeuvre of Hungarian award-winning architect Gabor Farkas. Besides his work and his own writing, interviews and fellow architects' essays are presented in this book.

The inspiration was one of his early buildings. We wanted to create a book that reflects the floors of the structure, so the book by itself is a reflection on architecture. It was divided into three main sections. In each section one may find his own writings - on white background -, colleagues' analysis - on red background - and interviews with him - on black background.

Through the process we have found out that Gabor has kept all his old mail, business cards, hand written letters and all sorts of documents. It was a huge collection of archives and a must to be included in the book. To create the same sense of old yellow paper, we introduced narrower pages with perforated edges. Here we've put documents, letters, etc., which were relevant to the text running through the pages.

Production Lesson(s)

As we wanted to include narrower pages in the book with all the old documents, our first idea was to insert those pages. We realized early on that it would be way over the budget and would be too complicated. So we had to look for another solution. We ended up with perforating the pages so the machines could assemble and bind them and when the book was ready those pages were torn out at the perforation. ”
