Published on the occasion of Guillermo Kuitca’s summer 2019 solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, this book debuts two new series of Kuitca’s works—The Family Idiot and Missing Pages. The catalog includes two richly illustrated essays by acclaimed art critic Christian Viveros-Fauné and writer and artist Chris Wiley, and its extensive plates section and installation views present readers with an immersive experience of the exhibition and the artist’s works.
An aesthetic rooted in classical sensibilities was employed through the use of justified typography, paper selection, and overall layout. Kuitca’s interest in opera, literature, and cartography led to the use of Perpetua Titling and Arno.
The book also uses two color stocks—one matte for the image plates, one uncoated and rougher for the texts.
