Do Ho Suh: Home within Home, exhibition catalogue, Leeum, 2012. Offset printing, sewn hardback binding with dust jacket, page size 216 x 275 mm, 360 pp. Printed and bound by Top Process.

Inspired by Suh Do Ho’s work involving intricate sewing processes, we created a custom typeface for this publication based on the skeletons of Letter Gothic. The glyphs are made of “strokes” only, to which one can apply whatever width in InDesign or Illustrator. In our case, all the headings set in the typeface are rendered in 0.125 mm stroke, regardless of the character size — except the title on the dust jacket, which demanded a little stronger impression. The jacket is printed on both sides of the thin paper, with the graphics combining to create the effect of embroidery.
