Design to Touch is a beautifully produced, comprehensive visual and technical guide to engraved printing, written for students of graphic arts as well as curious professionals. The book, co-authored by Rose Gonnella was a labor of love; a way to introduce and explore creative, modern uses of this centuries-old craft.
In addition to information on the process of engraving and helpful notes on industry standards and best practices, Design to Touch features thirty beautifully engraved pages from artwork contributed by internationally renowned designers including Stefan Sagmeister, Jessica Hische, Steff Geissbuhler, Steve Sandstrom, Matteo Bologna and Louise Fili.
The Design to Touch exhibition has been curated by Rose Gonnella and includes works from the book. Please check with the Nancy Dryfoos Gallery for exact hours of operation.
