DARKLIGHT is a book that celebrates the night. Each of the design decisions revolved around the idea of light and the absence of light. The phosphorescent prints emit light, the paper absorbs light, the handmade ink reflects light, the leather binding distorts light, and the embossed elements are only seen when light is at a low angle.
