Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory – Phaidon Press – 3.07

Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory

An international team of curators, writers, critics and artists was asked to nominate young artists for the show: here they are listed in what functions as a Yellow Pages of contemporary artists.



Like the well-known telephone directory, Younger Than Jesus also makes use of a light paper stock and soft cover to create a publication that is far removes from the unwieldy nature of many modern visual art books.



Art directed and designed y Phaidon’s Sonya Dyakova, the directory also makes use of large scale letterforms to introduce each alphabetised section. In one particularly nice reference, Dyakota also uses the type-face Bell Centennial for the body text, a face originally designed by Matthew Carter for AT&T’s US phone directories in the mid-1970s.
