Power of gesture
The first part of implementing our plan was to choose appropriate visual means that would not overshadow Wręczycki's work, but rather emphasize its character. Graphic themes taken from his paintings run throughout the publication. Expressive, romantic brushstrokes or pencil marks became an additional decorative element of the monograph.
The publication was typeset with Swear font, which is two-element typography in two-column composition. The coloring inspired by the artist's works found a great use in highlighting the footnotes, among other things.
The final touch to our work was the selection of printing means consistent with the graphic design of the monograph. The appropriate paper, refinements in the form of hot stamping, as well as the case and hardcover gave the publication an elegant as well as painterly character.
