Chris Roberts Book

Documenting forty years of an artist's work through tactile storytelling

Concept, Design, Production

Chris Roberts-Antieau is a self-taught textile artist. (Little known fact: Her first gig was designing stage costumes for Ted Nugent. Awesome.) When she was asked to open a show at the Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, she came to Design Ranch for help. With free-reign of Chris’s doodles, notes and art, we designed a retrospective book documenting her creative forty-year history. The concept for the 10-chapter book was based on a to-do list we found in a pile of Chris’s sketches. Our personal favorite: dress as many animals in human clothes as possible. (The Nuge would be so proud.)
