In 2011, on the occasion of the 22nd International Festival of Graphics and Poster of Chaumont and the 8th edition of Laterna magica in Marseille, Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié designed this exhibition catalog dedicated to the American artist Ed Fella. For this book, Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié (in collaboration with Cécile Binjamin) used an early version of the font Garaje 0703 Black.
Through his thousands of drawings, Polaroids, collages, posters … Ed Fella has been exploring typography and the American landscape since the early 1960s, and has invented a style whose singularity has earned him international recognition. His work is the site of a permanent dialogue between art and design, and is part of a complex filiation which starts from Art Nouveau, goes through Dada, surrealism, abstract expressionism, pop art, beat generation, psychedelic graphics … With Ed Fella, these kinships intersect, add up and make up in mirror a multiplicity of meanings, readings, and possible interpretations of each of his works. Layer by layer his work is made, layer by layer it can be read.
