Nick Mauss

This artist’s book, designed in collaboration with Manuel Raeder, re-imagines the pages of a catalogue as sheets of wrapping paper, which are intended to be torn out by the reader and used to wrap gifts. The designs, conceived by Nick Mauss specifically for this book, are derived from various sources in the fine and decorative arts. The wrapping paper materialises those isolated elements on which the mind snags and questions the distinctions between the presentation of gifts and the presentation of textual or visual information.

Illustrated essays by Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen and Kirsty Bell explore the cultural and philosophical context of Mauss’ work and the position of this book within it.

Includes 16 sheets of colour wrapping paper exclusively designed by the artist for this publication.
