Sonda Edizioni, book publisher, Turin, Italy

When this catalog was presented at the Turin book fair in 1988, the publisher had not yet published any books. The catalog was titled "The Missing Publisher" and it included instead essays from writers, artists, and intellectuals. I designed each spread with the image of books and libraries in mind. I used an old Encyclopedia and xeroxed it to create the backgrounds for the pages.
