During the 2020 Covid-19 lockdowns, Bivouac designed an annual review for The Wiener Holocaust Library. It was particularly important for the Library to reach out to funders during the pandemic, so they were keen to produce something special, but not frivolous. We used uncoated stock and avoided fancy finishes, opting instead for a french-folded cover to give the document some rigidity while allowing space for creative timelines. The final document fits nicely in the hand and is very tactile.
The concept has a past/present/future structure, with Covid-19 appearing bang in the centre, as a break from the norm and a period of re-appraisal, damage limitation and planning for the future. A book/arrow motif forms a ‘ribbon’ through the document, linking spreads and covers, holding images and breaking free. Colour changes from yellow to pink. The french-folded covers contain past and future timelines.
The document has been very well received by the Library and their funders and sponsors.
The document was printed and bound by Colour Options.
