Client: Ediciones de la Central + Reina Sofía Museum
A collection of books on art writings and art criticism. The name of the collection, 14 x 22, is a direct reference to the technical specifications of pictures hanging on museum walls and at the same time to the measurements/dimensions of the actual book. The cover is a white canvas that may be filled with scraps of paper, scribbles, extracts from sketchbooks, and actual pictures, depending on the nature of the content. It is a flexible system whose only ‘restriction’ is a typographic block for the title on the upper right corner. The inside of the book (and the entire collection) uses three main typefaces that may be combined depending on the content. To distinguish the book from other art writings and art essays, we designed the insides to look like a cross between a book of essays and a magazine.
