This featured modernist collection of Matter's catalog work was produced when he was the design consultant to the Guggenheim Museum between 1958 to 1968. Bodoni Poster Compressed appears to have been his adopted "house style" font of choice during this decade, which he applied with great restraint. I have to wonder if this wonderful 1940 Photographie cover design below was ever an influence on Matter for the Calder catalog cover design above. (Always attempting to connect the dots;) To learn more about the catalogs you can visit the Guggenheim Museum's online collection. All of Matters' catalogs are available at the Internet Archive.
