for Pittsburgh Center for the Arts


Diane Samuels was named “Artist of the Year” by Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Instead of a traditional catalogue, she wanted a book that focused on just one of her pieces—365 Days, 2000—in which she carved a single mark into a small block of wood each day for one year, then made a print from this carved block. To document her process, I designed this “flip book.” Photoshop allowed me to show each progressive carving as you flip through the book. Flipping the book in reverse shows a word chosen for each day of the year—one falling on top of the last—by curator Vicky A. Clark. 5.75 x 2.5 x 2 inches, 732 pages.
