Book Design for Artist Patsy McArthur


We are excited to reveal our book design for UK Artist Patsy McArthur, showcasing a selection of her work covering a decade.

This book was thoughtfully designed, with meticulous attention to both layout and the synergy and flow between images on each spread. Given the dynamic nature of McArthur's work, careful consideration was given to depicting movement. Images of falling, jumping, and diving were placed near the top, while landings and running were closer to the bottom. Studies and grouped images were carefully curated together, and more serene moments had a whole spread dedicated to each allowing reflection of the calm in them.


“Thanks for all your hard work Lou.”

Patsy McArthur, Artist


This hardcover case-bound book was produced by Mixam, featuring uncoated end pages and premium silk-coated pages. The cover image seamlessly wraps across the front, spine, and back of the hardback case-bound book.



“To showcase the images in their entirety without cropping, we carefully planned how they would span across two pages in a spread. By creating an extra-large image gutter in the center, we successfully avoided any appearance of the images falling into the spine.”

Lou Eldon, Creative Director, Studio Polpetto
