Johsel Namkung A Retrospective


Patience. A quality essential to photographers … and surely to those that designed and published this gorgeous collection of 100 exquisite images selected from the remarkable career of Johsel Namkung.

Paper, printing and binding reflect the Zen quality of the artist’s work and Cosgrove Editions’ design.

Case bound with silk fabric on 5-ply boards, the cover includes a tipped-on image that suggests the beauty waiting to be seen and felt inside. Printed on heavy LumiSilk with high-resolution stochastic screening, the photographs draw us inside their worlds.

Showing restraint in the face of such beauty is the mark of a seasoned design team who used a simple, uncluttered layout. Four-color process and spot gloss varnish are all these strong visuals need to convey the elegant and timeless character of the artist’s work.
