The book as dark, musty gallery

Catalog (text extract)

Carin Goldberg. Stewart, Tabori & Chang, €18.48

Graphic designer Carin Goldberg’s first book is a catalogue. Though at first glance it is reminiscent of the abstract picture books assembled in Tibor Kalman’s Chairman or Alan Fletcher’s recent The Art of Looking Sideways, Catalog, at just under 70 pages, has more in common with an artist’s book by Ed Ruscha than anything in the traditional design book market … she’s created a dark, musty gallery in book form.
