People of the Mud by Luis Alberto Rodriguez turns a dancer's eye to rural Irish culture. Using choreography and arrangement alongside naturalistic portraits and details, Rodriguez's work invokes the interrelationship between cultural identity and the landscape, and how both are constructed through hands and bodies over many centuries.⁣

We worked closely with Luis on the handprinting and reproduction of his images, printed here as rich, warm tritones. House inside a slipcase, People of the Mud is an exercise in letting the relationship between classic book design and modern ideas naturally merge, using a bold unreleased typeface by Abi Huynh alongside elegant, warm papers and materials.
