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.
