Maine-based Artist Tanja Hollander came to Mullenberg Designs to build a run of custom-branded Slipcases for her recently released book, Are You Really My Friend?. The book accompanies her current exhibition at MASS MoCA of the same title. The exhibition will be on view through February 11, 2018.
Custom-built Slipcases for Artist’s Books
Excerpt from MASS MoCA about, Are You Really My Friend?… “In 2011, Maine-based photographer Tanja Alexia Hollander set out to differentiate the actual from the virtual by photographing all 626 of her Facebook friends. Since then, she has traveled across the globe, setting up in-person meetings in her friends’ homes to discover the ways in which friendship is defined, and how permission is granted into one’s private — yet also very public — online life. Through this project, the artist has been able to take the virtual out of friendship.”
The Structure is a single-signature sewn flat-back binding. We worked with the printers at Edison Press in Sanford, Maine to offer the Museum a clean and unique presentation. The books are covered in Buckram Stone with an accent triangle of Arrestox Teal Green Linen. We were honored to build the housing for these catalogs of works by this celebrated Maine Artist.
