A Contemplative Angler
Selections from the Bruce P. Dancik Collection of Angling Books
A Contemplative Angler is an exhibition catalogue showcasing a carefully curated selection of publications from the Bruce P. Dancik Collection of Angling Books. The classic design sets a tone for the historical content, which includes examples of manuals and handbooks, limited editions, adventure guides, and scientific information. The catalogue playfully incorporates a number of angling references such as the large-scale fish that wraps around the dust jacket and those that swim on and off pages. The colour palette in shades of sea-foam green and page footers of fish tails, heads, and flies add subtle reminders of the subject matter.
