Phyllida Barlow: Quarry Running Sheets

Here is a sneak preview of Phyllida Barlow: quarry, a book that I have been designing with the artist and the team at Jupiter Artland. Nestled in the woods of Jupiter Artland, quarry brings together three sculptural objects made from concrete and steel, each with Barlow’s signature textural surfaces. Quarry has been commissioned by Nicky and Robert Wilson for the tenth anniversary of Jupiter Artland, a sculpure park located in the 100 acre estate of Bonnington House, a Jacobean manor house, 25 minutes from Edinburgh city centre. It has been a pleasure to work on this publication which accompanies Phyllida Barlow’s first permanent outdoor commission; it includes an essay by Jo Applin and texts by Nicky Wilson and Phyllida Barlow, alongside a series of wonderful photographs that document the gestation of this remarkable work, by Allan Pollok-Morris, Anna Kunst, and Thierry Bal. The book is being printed by Gomer Press in Llandysul, west Wales: the book has been proofed and printed, and, ahead of binding, Gomer have sent me these running sheets of the text pages for a final check. The text pages are printed on Munken Lynx Smooth 150gsm, and the cover will be quarter bound with a foil-blocked spine of blue Brillianta cloth with black head and tail bands and endpapers of Colorplan Real Grey. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the finished book – and seeing Phyllida's work at Jupiter Artland!
