ISTD: Makers Brief
What started as a university project became a commission to the subject of the book. Utilising a modern and clean layout to convey artist blacksmithing gives their work the potential for a wider market appeal.
The photographs were taken around Colin Phillips’ workshop, this allowed for many macro photographs and wider shots that, together with a black and white gamma, immerse the reader to the craft.
The publication’s chapters have a colour scheme that corresponds to the spectrum of worked/heated steel from grey to molten yellow/white.
Each individual chapter reflects this theme throughout.
