Stealing Beauty: British Design Now An ICA Exhibition in association with Perrier Jouet Champagne
London ICA designed by Graphic Thought Facility 1999
104pp on various weights and types of paper plus 8 colour printed interleaved inserts and rear colophon card. Spiral bound with plastic binder. Very good copy. Graphic Thought Facility was originally invited to exhibit its work as part of Stealing Beauty, the first design exhibition to be held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Instead, the designers asked to create the exhibition graphics and catalogue. The spiral binding gives the book the informal quality of a notebook. Moreover, with postcards, questionnaires, and the sponsor's own logo (a label from a champagne bottle) bound into the book, each copy appears to be made by hand, even though they were mass produced. Scarce.
