Plumb is a line of journals envisioned, designed, and illustrated by contemporary artists. The project was a collaboration with artist Tucker Nichols and publisher Knock Knock. Each season we worked with three artists to conceive and co-design their books. The artists were asked to think about how they use journals in their art practice and about the meaning and utility of recording their ideas. As originators of this imprint, we were involved in developing what the line would be, naming the company, creating the identity, and designing all products.
The artists that we worked with on this project were Reed Anderson, Katherine Bradford, Matt Furie, Linda Geary, Wendy Macnaughton, Liz Markus, Ed Panar, Jason Polan, Tucker Nichols, Nathaniel Russell, and Sumi Ink Club.
