Photobooks

by John Menneer

The Art of Ordinary
Can beauty be found in the banal? Can the straight photograph portray beauty, goodness and truth? Here is a research monograph that searched out some beauty in our imperfect material world – a search for Form in simple expression. The book design and layout inspiration came from old handbooks and field guides that were prevalent during the early to mid 1900’s. A particularly dry one called the Art of Delivery (for lawn bowlers) was used for the design of this book.
