Works on Paper




Works on Paper is an annual journal created by Permanent Collection founders Fanny Singer and Mariah Nielson, for which they commission writing, research and critique relating to art and design. The first issue, published in autumn 2016, featured contributions from artists, critics and curators including Jeremy Deller, Fritz Haeg, Mark Dion and Thessaly La Force.

It was important that Works on Paper had its own visual identity, distinct from the Permanent Collection branding but able to sit harmoniously alongside. The cover for the first issue features full-bleed debossed type inspired by the Modernist printed ephemera supplied by the founders amongst their visual references for the project. Inside, printed on newsprint-like paper stock, the layout accommodates text and images in a wide range of formats, in response to the diverse nature of the contributions commissioned for each issue.
