We’ve been big fans of Carl Kleiner’s work for a couple of years now, and there’s no sign that he’s going to stop making amazing things any time soon. Take for example the cover he recently created for Creative Review’s Annual issue.
The annual ended up being the largest issue they’ve ever printed, containing all the winning work in this year’s Creative Review Annual and showcasing the finest work of the past 12 months as selected by their judges. For such a momentous issue Carl took the A from Annual and water cut the shape from a couple of pieces of 6cm thick marble. The cover reflects the idea of timelessness as only so few materials really can. It’s interesting how he chose to stack the pieces of marble to give the piece a sense of dimensionality when it could have come off as being rather flat. Fantastic and elegant.
