Deirdre Logue Monograph

Book Design

 

“Beyond Her Usual Limits: The Film and Video Works of Deirdre Logue, 1997 to 2017” is a 158-page monograph, cataloguing two decades of Canadian artist Deirdre Logue’s artistic practice. Logue utilizes self-portraiture and performance to investigate themes of self-doubt, trauma, excess, perversion and psychic unrest. Warped and distorted typographic treatments are used on the book’s silkscreened cover and section openers, and essays are typeset in a mixture of font styles, widths and weights, creating a visual tension reflective of the anxious and unruly qualities present in much of Logue’s work.
