Studio Job - The Book of Job

Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. At once highly specific and yet entirely universal, personally expressive and yet experimental, Studio Job has crafted a body of work that draws upon classical, popular and contemporary design and highly visual and sculptural art.

About

The Book Of Job

The lavish package resembles a traditional leather-bound bible featuring a number of custom-printing effects including raised bands on the spine of the hardcover case which is covered in imitation leather overlaid with a dense signature composition by Studio Job, gilded page edges, cloth markers, black-letter type, and letterpress elements that distinguish the book from the conventional treatment of design monographs. Further, the slip-cased book is two-in-one with Studio Job on one side, and then on the flip side, the biblical The Book of Job, complete with illustrated illuminations.

 

Themes present in the biblically inspired The Book of Job are echoed in the organization of the volume, translating the formal wit of Studio Job’s work into print. Interior spreads, including photographs taken expressly for the book, and gatefold tableaux specifically designed by the artists and created using special dies, will provides rare insight into Studio Job’s particular approach to design and pattern-making, resulting in a highly collectible and rarified book.

 

Written by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel, text by Viktor & Rolf, Alessandro Mendini and Murray Moss

“This is not any ordinary 300­ page biblical­themed monograph with gilded­edge paper, a half­dozen gatefolds, and a leather­scented cover imprinted with quasi­medieval cartoonage. It’s The Book of Job, the holiday season’s most coveted design book, by two of the world’s most cultish designers” -New York Magazine
