Italian Masterworks is an auction catalog created to market and celebrate a collection of rare objects and furniture from the Italian collector Loris Manna.
To distinguish this collection, the catalog is printed on uncoated paper using high-definition UV inks—with the historic essays and a gold PMS for the Italian translation on an uncoated green stock in the first signature of the perfect bound book. Thoughtful photography planning of the collection and the inclusion of historical images, text, and customized captions complete the styling of the layouts. Creating a minimal pattern based on Ponti’s furniture for the cover artwork contextualized the book within the mid-century Italian design movement.
