Dovecot What’s On Guide | July-December 2016
Designed by James Brook for Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, 2016

210 x 148 mm | 12 pages with half cover
Printed by Allander, Edinburgh, on Vision Superior

This is the third edition of the Dovecot Gallery What’s On guide that I have designed. The guide is twelve pages with a half cover that reveals half of a full bleed image of a detail from a work, Optician 4, by the artist Kevin Harman that was included in Dovecot’s The Scottish Endarkenment exhibition. As with previous guides, full-bleed images are used throughout in contrast with pages of pared back typography printed on the clean white of Vision Superior, an uncoated paper that has a pleasant tactility. The format and template remain the same as the previous editions but is always tweaked to accommodate new types of information, in this case, a news section detailing Dovecot's creation of a rug for the artist Linder that became the ‘eighth dancer’ in a new ballet titled Children of the Mantic Stain, choreographed by Kenneth Tindall, with music by Maxwell Sterling, performed by Northern Ballet with signature sportswear designed by Christopher Shannon. The ballet was performed at Dovecot as part of the Hayward touring exhibition British Art Show 8.
