The exhibition catalogue as an editorial design object
Authors: Elisabete Rolo, Marta Nunes
Abstract: In the field of communication design, editorial design is one of the most rele-vant areas and, in this context, exhibition catalogues are prominent publica-tions. Generally, these are medium or large format books, intended to perpetu-ate the information present in the (ephemeral) exhibitions to which they relate. So, they require great care in the design and graphic production process. In this article, we consider exhibition catalogues, aiming to register their main characteristics and understand how they evolved over time. To achieve this, we base our study on bibliographic research, on the analysis of catalogues from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation – a reference institution in the Por-tuguese cultural panorama – and on interviews with experts in the field.
Keywords: Editorial Design, Book Design, Exhibition Catalogue, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Portugal).
