Like many publications designed for the Folger Shakespeare Library, this unique catalog was originally planned as a simple foldout brochure. But the theme of the exhibit itself—”Papers & Porcelains”—sparked an idea for something more.
Celebrating two magnificent collections at the Folger, this dos-a-dos catalog features the Babette Craven collection of theatrical memorabilia on one side: early English porcelains illuminating the impact of the English stage on visual arts. The Lada-Mocarski collection of early decorated papers on the other side: marbled, brocade, paste, block-printed and uncut papers.
Produced under the creative direction of Antonio Alcalá, this piece was awarded an AIGA 50 Certificate of Excellence.
