    The Or catalog was published on the occasion of an exhibition at Mucem which presents a trip into the history of art about gold. Object of covetousness and conquest, traditionally symbol of power and wealth, is also, by its very plasticity, the material of all metamorphoses, the quality that makes it a privileged support in the arts.

    The layout was done by Huz & Bosshard with Helvetius (by Matthieu Cortat) and the soon to be released Walbaum Plain (by Thomas Huot-Marchand) as the main typefaces, both available from 205.tf.

    The footnotes mix Walbaum Plain with italics from Bram de Does’s Trinité.
