For the Gagosian Gallery New York's exhibit of Philip Taaffe's works on paper, Mucca designed a cracker-jack catalog. Taaffe employs a near-encyclopedic attention to symbols & elements in his constructions, and the choice of typography echoes this with a pleasant hodgepodge of designs, including Argent, Gardner, and Freight. The cover sports a dust jacket that unfolds into a poster for the show.
